Lovely painterly fruit print 50s cotton dress in soft blue, teal, purple and pink tones. Large, almost abstract pears and apples and spherical shapes. Bodice has short dolman sleeves with turn up cuffs and a high cowl neck. Waistline nips in and there is a slightly dropped waistband from which the skirt falls in small gathers.
