Meet Golden Sands, she is a RARE and coveted 1970s cotton bohemian dream dress by one of my favourite British boutique labels of the time Earlybird. This is an absolutely stunning dress, in a warm tawny shade with delicate mixed prints. She has a square neckline, stunning sleeves, tiered skirt and side ties. This is the only version I have ever seen of this Earlybird dress, she is truly a rare and precious gem, and I hope she finds the best home today..
This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10, could also work on a UK 6.
Bust - up to 38"
Waist - 32" can be cinched with her side ties
Length - 53.5"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Golden Sands has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear. She does have scattered fade spots all over the dress, to be honest these blend in well to the fabric and do not detract. She has very slight underarm discolouration and very slight fade at her shoulders. These flaws do not detract from her beauty and when worn are barely noticeable. They have been reflected in her price, without these she would be £200+.
This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear, but please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.
