The Octopus Garden Vintage Handmade Magic Babydoll 60s Dress in Candyfloss
Welcome to our Handmade Collection!
And quite possibly to my most favourite piece we have made to date - the magic babydoll dress!! You know we are a huge fan of a ridiculously big sleeve here at TOG, we love them just as much as we love the shapes and prints of the 1960s, and this dress is the perfect combo of both! These dresses are inspired by a pattern we found from 1968, with a trapeze shape (meaning it goes out from the bust) and mini length celebrating all things adorably feminine from the 60s. Not to mention it features the perfect bell sleeve, with an elasticated band to exaggerate the shape and give it that medieval revival feel!
Each piece is made in England by Caitlin or our seamstress Helen, who has over 30 years experience in historical sewing!
This dress specifically is made from a beautiful soft brush cotton and features that perfect 60s pink floral print! It is designed to fit oversized so this will fit a variety of sizes, and it goes on over the head. Shown on a size 10-12.
Bust - 42 inches
Hips - 52 inches
