Cute handmade shirtwaister cotton dress in a lovely Venice cityscape themed print with gondolas, architecture and plazas. Bodice has a collared v-neck and short sleeves. It fastens with three small gold buttons to the chest. Skirt is sewn in six softly flared panels that give the skirt fullness with a wide a-line shape. Side metal zipper to fasten. No labels, appears handmade. I would estimate early 60s era, but have had the same fabric in a 50s dress before, due to it being handmade it is a little bit difficult to date precisely.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a L-XL. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Shoulder to waist: 17"
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 16"
(There is a 2" hem on this)
Very good condition. This is handmade. I think the buttons may be a replacement as they look more modern.
