A few weeks ago I bought this incredible 1970’s Pantel maxi dress from Zee Vintage Fashion on Etsy and I absolutely love it! It’s as comfortable as a snuggly nightgown, but absolutely gorgeous!
The dress shipped very quickly, was carefully and beautifully packaged, was exactly as described and Zee was really friendly and wonderful to do business with!
Sadly I wasn’t able to find out anything about this designer/brand, but from the other dresses I’ve been able to find of theirs on Etsy and eBay, I really love their style and will definitely be on the hunt for more!
This dress has some really lovely little features, such as the empire waist with light gathering in the front and back and a neat sleeve technique I’ve never seen before – this extra bit of fabric on the inside of the sleeve head which makes the sleeve puff out even more when worn!
I find this detail fascinating and definitely want to try using this technique in one of my own garments someday!
It also has a self fabric belt that you tie up in a bow in the back of the dress that’s really pretty, and a row of lovely orange buttons down the front:
At 5’3″, this dress is floor length on me, which is perfect for the style. This is the kind of dress that makes you want to run around in the grass barefoot with flowers in your hair and I love it!
And speaking of flowers, the fabric is just gorgeous!
I love everything about this dress and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase from Zee, I’d gladly do business with her again and definitely recommend her shop!
Zee Vintage Fashion is based out of Hamilton, Ontario, and can be found on Etsy.
