Lovely and very romantic 50s floral cotton dress, that works well as both a day dress and a party number. Creamy white cotton with a sweet print of red and pink roses with green and brown/yellow leaves. Fitted bodice with a sleeveless cut and a rounded neck in front and high square neck to the back. Full skirt which is a plain wide a-line in front but has a truly showstopping back with three tiers each finished with a pink band and a little bow. Waistline nips in and comes with a matching belt. Side metal zipper to fasten. No labels.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.SIZE

Good condition. This is lovely but does have some slightly uneven fade. The back of the bodice is very slightly more yellowed and very slightly more faded than the skirt, specially the back of the skirt, which is brighter/crisper. I've washed this multiple times and soaked in vanish and though this has improved massively, it's not quite lifted completely. It's pretty slight, so on the whole I think it isn't very noticeable when worn, but has been priced down accordingly. Please see photos. The last photo shows a comparison between lower skirt and back of bodice to give an idea.
