Handmade 50s style floral cotton dress in a white cotton with a lovely purple floral print. Fitted bodice with v-neck and sleeveless design. Nipped in waistline and a sweet full skirt sewn in small gathers, giving it a lovely volume when worn with a petticoat. Side metal zipper to fasten. Lovely little spring/summer floral, crisp and light!

No labels, this has been handmade, so hard to date, the materials appear to be vintage originals, both cotton and zip, and the pattern is authentically 50s, but some things make me suspect it may have been made later, like the zigzag stitching over the internal seam allowances and running stitch to waist and hem. I've priced it accordingly, but this looks almost indistinguishable from original 50s vintage.

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

SIZE
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like an XS and slightly short-waisted so would best suit a shorter/petite lady. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
