The Liesl Dress is a classic fit and flare style with a modern comfortable fit. It originally came from a 1950's sewing pattern and was inspired by the fun and nostalgia of The Sound Of Music.
This feminine, well balanced design suits a variety of body shapes and sizes and strikes the perfect balance between tailoring and everyday wearability. Those who are breastfeeding will love the button front.
- Scoop neck - Vintage buttons - Cap sleeves - Neatly fitted to the body at the smallest point on the waist so it's very flattering, but not too tight - Gathered, full skirt drapes over tummy and bottom beautifully - Knee length - Zip back for a perfect fit - Pockets hidden in the side seams - One or few of a kind
Cotton/Poly. Genuine vintage fabric in excellent preloved condition. Ethically made in Sydney, Australia. Handwash or machine washable (in laundry bag on delicate cycle) with low spin. Hang on a coat hanger to dry so there's no need to iron. Do not tumble dry.
Sizing and fit is average to generous. First model is tall with a small bust wearing size 10. Second model is tall with average bust wearing size 12 of an older version of this style. Due to the working button front, those with a very big bust may like to go up a size to avoid the gaps between buttons gaping/tugging slightly.
