Minidress in Marchioness fabric
Drop waist dresses first became popular in the 1920s. They allowed the freedom of movement necessary for an active lifestyle that included sport and dancing and women in this era wanted that freedom. Forty years on and young women were again craving liberation and claimed it in their clothes. The long, lean, waistless look became the new youthful ideal. With its boyish straight shape and almost childlike lace trimmed Peter Pan collar and bib this dress epitomised the look of the decade.
