Lovely Blanes 50s cotton dress in crisp black and white with a small star print. Lovely big blue floral border print around the hem of the skirt which is picked up in the collar trim to the neck too. Fitted bodice with sleeveless design. 13 small black domed shank buttons to the chest, these are ornamental only, so not functional. Neckline fastens with hidden popper buttons and has a neat collar. Natural waist nips in and the skirt falls from a dropped waistband with a dramatic full fit. Side metal zipper fastener.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
