Shirt waist dresses are great because they're very easy to wear. Add shoes, handbag and maybe some tights and you're set. This one is a home-sewn wonder in a most excellent print that's artful and atomic at once.
The dress has a winged collar and a long row of decorative black buttons. The best detail is seen at the waist--there is an inset triangle that's an edgey accent that seems to work perfectly with angular, jaggedy print. (See photo 4.)
The dress is made from a light weight but very durable blend of cotton and linen that, in addition to the fabu print, has a window pane texture to it. A nicely gored skirt moves perfectly on your body and allows for just the right amount of swing.
Do you like the colors? Of course you do! They're quintessentially '50s and ought to really rev up your vintage dress selection...bright, cheery and artsy...that's how we like it at Lucitebox.
