Blanes late 50s/early 60s cotton summer dress in a really fantastic huge strawberry print. Fitted bodice with wide neckline trimmed in pink piping. Sleeveless cut.

(There is a 3.5" hem on this) 

CONDITION
Good condition.

-Some alterations: Hem has been altered but is uncut with original bias binding and a generous 3.5" to work with if desired. The darts on the back have been changed, it looks like two have been taken out and two new ones has added to conceal a repair. There is one darn by one of the darts, see photo. Due to where it is, I don't think it detracts too much when worn. 

-Three small scuff holes to the back of the bodice and one slight repair above the hem.

-Some minor fade to pink piping and bow. Slight wear to the piping on the shoulders, see photo.

-A tiny pink pin prick mark on the shoulder. See photo. A small mark between the buttons and couple of tiny marks on the back of the hem of the skirt. Very very faint underarm discolouration, slight enough, and very localised, so doesn't really show.

Priced to reflect.
