Blossom and bloom in this demure floral print dress from fashion house Henri Bendel...

 
This is an original design by Jean Muir, who started and owned Jane & Jane from 1962 through 1966, until opening a line with her own name. This dress would've been sold at Henri Bendel, of London, thus the double label. It is also marked a 'Limited Edition' from H.Bendel, so this dress does have a bit of history behind it!
The silhouette is a classic fit-and-flare, with a princess-seamed bodice featuring full length sleeves and turtleneck style collar. The skirt is box-pleated into the tiny waist, and has two hidden pockets within front-side seams. The lower part of the skirt is adorned with two chocolate brown colored satin ribbons. The overall fabric is a lightweight, 100% wool jersey knit and only the skirt is lightly lined with a burnt orange acetate fabric. Interior of dress features a grosgrain ribbon interior waistband, with hook & eye closures at both interior and exterior waist, plus center-back metal zipper closure, with more hook & eyes at neckline (option for a full-standing turtleneck, or folded -as shown in pics). Overall condition is good, very strong and wearable but there are several condition issues; firstly, an alteration was made at some point, letting down the hem, by removing the top ribbon -which I believe is original, whereas the lower ribbon doesn't quite match colors, therefor I believe it was added during alteration (this theory is also supported by the much shorter length of the lining fabric). Unfortunately, when this alteration was made, it left many teeny tiny stitch holes, which are noticeable when light is backing the fabric. There are also about two dozen moth holes throughout, with some of these having been patch-repaired (by 'stealing' fabric from the seam allowance), and some darn-repaired (some by myself, some by previous owners). I've done my best to catch and fix all of the issues around the bodice, however some teeny holes remain at skirt and lining. Dress has been washed, steamed and ironed, so rest assured no pests remain present. Labels read 'Jane & Jane, London', 'Henri Bendel, Limited Editions, All Wool, Made in England'.
Please note: this dress was photographed on one of my more oddly-shaped models/forms due to the tiny waist size. I also have many more pictures on another model, as well as detail shots of the aforementioned issues, contact me for more info.
