Handmade white 50s cotton day dress in a wonderful floral print of green and white/grey roses. Really stunning romantic floral. Fitted bodice with a square neckline and sleeveless design. Darts for a fitted silhouette. Waist nips in and the skirt is sewn in small gathers for a lovely full fit. Back metal zipper. No labels, I would think it is handmade. Perfect little spring summer smock. Crisp cotton.
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 Small. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Shoulder to waist: 16"
(There is a short hem on this so can not be let down.)
Good condition with some signs of alterations, mostly only visible on the inside.
-Neckline has been altered and the interfacing fabric used is white unprinted cotton. This can't be seen when worn as it is on the inside.
-It looks like the two front bodice darts have been taken in slightly, again not visible when worn.
-Back zipper has been replaced or resewn and there are some signs where the old seams were, visible as a line of little scuffs/wear along the current seam, see last photo.
