Bill Gibb Mauve Crepe Hooded'Bee' Gown, c. Iconic bee design stitched to the pockets, labelled size 10. Remember a UK 10 from the 70s is smaller than a present day 10. Iconic bee design stitched to the pockets, lab.
Lled size 10, 118cm long. Ved and is in much better condition than I expected from its age. No stains and appears not to have been worn often.
2 of the buttons at the bottom are replacements and slightly different but they are very plain buttons. Slight pull to one of the inside darts to the lining - see picture.Minor fine darning repairs in a couple of locations around the hood and back of one sleeve. Photograhs showing them - these were only about 2 or 3mm in size - I think the ones at the front near the hood were as a result of wearing a brooch or a pin - you really have to look closely to see them.
