Sweet late 50s Novelty Print Shirwaist Dress -
Sometimes, finding cute vintage in a larger sizes is a challenge. Here's an an adorable late '40s /early '50s dress in a really hard to find size.
A pretty bright navy blue background is dotted with a flurry of red and white flowers. At times, we think they're like dragon flies. Sometimes, they remind us of butterflies. Or maybe they're just an abstract novelty print. Whatever the case, this dress is super sweet. It's a shirt waist dress with shiny, cherry red buttons. It has a matching belt that was specifically constructed for it. It's newer than the dress, but the plastic belt buckle looks perfect with the buttons. The collar is wide, almost nautical looking, and the short sleeves feature turn back cuffs that are also adorned with cute red buttons.
This special dress ought to move comfortably through many seasons. Grab it while you still have a chance to make it your own.
GOOD. Sold AS FOUND. There are two 1/4" holes in the dress--both are on the bodice. A few picks/ pin holes below the collar. Belt is a new self-fabric construction made from extra hem fabric. No top button hole because the last button was moved up to the top. Consequently, there's no bottom button. This dress is being sold AS IS and is not returnable.
