This pretty vintage 70s dress is a bohemian's delight: made of deep claret red lace with a fitted bodice that buttons up the front, and a flared swishy skirt with a deep ruffle at the hem.l
Laura Ashley and Young Edwardian led the way with this look, and many others emulated the style, such as this one.
Label: 'N Things, California USA
This princess seamed bodice has a deep V front neckline with self loop closures that slip over faux pearl shank buttons. The sleeves are sheer lace.
