Beautiful 50s summer shirtwaister in a light cotton with a fantastic floral print. Soft white with soft pastel blue orchid style flowers and pale green stems. Print is big and bold, but colours are soft and summery. Dress fastens to the front with seven small polished shank buttons. Collared v-neck and sleeveless cut. Bust is a little bit blousey, but waistline nips the silhouette in strongly and the skirt is generous and full sewn in neat pleats giving it a big sweep. No labels but looks commercially made. Midi length. Summer perfect, light and airy with a swishy floaty skirt.

Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.

CONDITION
Good condition. Some small scuffs and signs of wear to the piping trim on the sleeve. The sleeve trim is handstitched on so it is possible this originally had sleeves and have been altered, though this isn't really noticeable when worn, the alteration is done neatly. The slightest amount of seam straining to darts.
