I spent the longest time looking for a vintage dress just like this one. Every one I found was either too big or too small or had marks on it (I hate when vintage shops sell marked or damaged clothes and think its okay because "it's vintage") or was the wrong colour. That's the problem with vintage shopping, you could find the most amazing dress but if it doesn't fit you, you can't just grab one in your size.
Anyway I got into my head that I wanted a quite plain, simple 60s style dress that was pure sixties in the cut. Something that looked like the type of thing Megan from Mad Men might wear. And after trying on what felt like hundreds of dresses, I finally found this blue St Micheal's one (and another one...) in a new (I think) vintage shop in Stockport, Peggy Mae Vintage. I wish this shop had been there when I was living in Stockport. It's deceptively big and has a really big range of stuff. And a tearoom too! I found it wandering along the underbank after visiting my favourite charity shop, St Ann's Hospice. I definitely recommend a visit to this shop too. I've never been to the vintage fair in Stockport, but I think that Stockport is becoming a bit of a vintage destination.
The label says it's made from crimpolene, which is a word I love. It also says it's for a girl that's 5'2" tall which I like.
