Darling Dottie Vintage 50s Chenille Polka Dot Dress -
Hot pink floufs and poufs decorate this light bubblegum pink dress from the '50s. Those fuzzy pink polka dots are actually cotton chenille that's woven into the fabric. They're 3-d (no special glasses necessary) and they're simply darling.
This dress has a sweet neckline that features a folded and pressed triangle that seems just right for a brooch or two. It reminds us of an envelope just waiting to be opened. The cap sleeves keep it simple and casual--just right for a breezy summer day of bicycling, shopping, and backyard lounging. The dress zips at the side and has a self-fabric belt that closes with hooks and eyes. The skirt is a wide a-line shape that's sure be comfortable and cool.
Dresses like this casual, home sewn cutie are fun to wear on a sunny day. They're a step up from the basic '50s house dress, especially when you add a few kicky accessories.
Very good. Two spots on shoulder as shown. One very faint spot shown in close-up of fabric. Otherwise, freshly laundered and clean.
