1970's Pink butterfly sleeved dress

VintageRachel ChurchComment

This dress is such a breath of fresh air.  It's a 1970's bubblegum pink short crepe dress with pleated butterfly sleeves.  Crepe is a French word meaning "crimped" and is a texture probably best described as grainy, puckered, or crinkled.  Can you see the slight lines going down the fabric and adding texture? I think crinkled and crimped are perfect words to describe this little lady. The overall style is more of a simple shift shape, but the sleeves turn it up a notch and really make the overall design more exciting.  It's great because this dress could so easily be dressed up or down by adding the right accessories.  It's summer ready and super versatile. Check it out in the Etsy shop today!

P.S. - Did you know I'm having a 10% off sale all during summer?  Well, it's true! Don't miss out on some great finds!
