Cappuccino brown speckled daisy summer dress

This wonderful Japanese handmade dress (I would say form the 70’s) is my favourite in the collection so far. Everything about it is perfect. The high quality cotton fabric is easy-care and very comfortable, with beautiful colours and print. Bodice and skirt are lined, sleeves are somewhat sheer. The elevated waist is highlighted by a belt, which works really well with the asymmetrical bodice design. The three buttons in the front are functional, and there is also a long zipper on the side of the dress. Beautiful knee length fitted silhouette.
