The Octopus Garden Vintage Handmade Dress and Headscarf in 'Sea Bloom'
Welcome to our Handmade Collection!!
These are the cutest zip up mini dresses, inspired by Mary Quant and the gorgeous babes of the 60s! The perfect dress for groovy girls, taking you through from the warmest summer days to the chilliest autumn/winter. So adorable layered with your favourite shirt or roll neck, or just with some 60s pumps in the summer! And even comes with a matching handmade headscarf!!!
Each dress is made in England by our seamstress Helen, who has over 30 years experience in historical sewing!
Made from genuine 60s or 70s fabric, these dresses feature that classic mod shape (designed to be slightly looser so you can layer!) and an O ring silver zip. For more pictures of fit and styling head over to our instagram @theoctopusgardenuk.
