Tawny brown wool mini dress

Tawny brown wool mini dress 1

This classy 60’s Japanese handmade mini dress is made of yellow-brown wool with hints of orange and green, and is entirely lined. It opens with a long zipper in the back. The four large acrylic buttons in the front are decorative, and might have been added after the dress was already made, or by a different owner, because they are sewn through the lining with black thread not matching the rest of the dress design. The dress has a beautiful fitted line that will suit slender silhouettes (chest area might feel quite tight depending on your body type).

Estimated size: XS
Material: Wool, lining
Handmade dress
Condition: Very good (a very slight tear, barely visible, in the front of the skirt area)
