In the 1970’s, designers such as Marry Quant and Bill Gibb, looked at working with diffrent man made textiles.
This fabulous welsh flannel wool dress is a perfect example of taking a traditional hand woven fabric and creating an iconic, stylish dress typical of the era.
Her high, Edwardian style neckline, leads to her tailored bodice, which has a deep yoke, edged with a ruffle.
Her long, puffed, voluminous sleeves end in a large, buttoned deep cuff.
From her neat waistline, her long flowing skirt, ends with a deep ruffle on the hemline.
She is fully lined with a deep green lining throughout the dress.
A truly wearable addition to your vintage collection.
