I always search for pieces made in England in the 60s and 70s, when London was the center of fashion and dictated trends to the rest of the world. You would think these pieces were plentiful, but they're not, because at that time, garments were hand-crafted, made in small batches, sold in indie boutiques and not exported. This dress is so simple and elegant...a timeless design. The top is satin and the bottom is rayon. Tag reads, "John Marks Made in England This Garment Should Be Dry-Cleaned." Zips up the back. Measures 35" bust, 26" waist, 47" long.
