Ada is an 80s cotton blouse with a prairie / Victoriana feel.  The high frill neck and frill front is really on trend but also timeless, and being vintage you know you have an item that is one of a kind. The buttons are concealed behind an embroidered placket and the from panel has beautiful floral design embroidery with delicate tiny cut outs. The sleeves are full length and have volume and there is light shoulder padding to give a bit of structure to the style.  

Wear this item on its own with jeans throughout the year, or layer up under a knitted tank for cooler months, this style of neckline looks brilliant poking out of a cute knit. 

Fit

Best fit UK 12-8 depending fit preference.  Measurements; Armpit to armpit 20 inches, length 24 inches. 

Excellent vintage condition, some of the original buttons have been replaced onto back fastening but this is not hugely noticeable and definitely does not derate from the look and presence of the garment.

As with all of us there may be subtle signs of past lives and loves on any vintage garment as it is not ' box fresh'. At Second Stories we think this just adds to the beauty and story of any garment, rest assured any noticeable issue and flawed will always be highland up front in the listing which is more than can be said for your ex! 

100% Cotton.  Machine washable and line dry. 

Materials

Material:
Our dress is made from 100% European linen, sourced from flax. Flax is a renewable resource that grows quickly and requires much less water than conventional cotton, making it an eco-friendly choice we love.
