On a recent trip to Raleigh, North Carolina I visited Shabby Lane Antiques, and spent hours investigating (and purchasing!) items from buttons, to pins & bangles, to my first vintage dress. Wonderful experience — couldn’t believe down South prices — can’t wait to get back!
Here’s my question: What era do y’all (Southern for “you all”) think the dress is from? 1980s?
Style is slightly A-line, buttons down the front, is belted under the bust (belt was missing; chiffon substituted), has inseam pockets, and is ankle length. Dress has a 4” hand-sewn hem; lining has 3.5” hand-sewn hem; dress is definitely RTW due to seam finishings, label, etc.
Many thanks in advance!
