Dress with sheet music print

Hayley Smith found this Maggy dress in an op-shop and gifted it to her friend Natalie Robinson-Tantin. The Maggy brand was made by Nuffield Manufacturing in Auckland. The built-in bust support in this sunfrock meant that there was no need to wear a bra. Bras at this time did not have attractive straps and were definitely not made to be seen.
