I found this wonderful dress while on my trip to Sydney last week. Initially I was undecided on whether the dress was 80s or 40s; the shoulder pads made me think 80s but the tag and material were reminiscent of 1940s day dresses. Nonetheless, I did a Google search for the label 'Wakes Multiple Fitting'. My favourite part about finding vintage myself is scouring for history of the label (another example of my love for this is here). As it turns out, Wakes is a label from Melbourne; the 'multiple fitting' part of the tag refers to the godet in the waist to allow for more room if needed!
