Tartan Plaid Vintage 50s Full Skirt Dress -
This tartan plaid dress from the 1950's is absolutely perfect for a Scottish princess. According to our research, this plaid represents the Gordon clan. What better way to show your heritage than with this Highland wonder? (You might try bagpipes, but we'd like to think that this dress will be a more popular way to show your Gaelic pride.)
Made of a nicely weighted wool, the dress has a fitted bodice and fin-cuffed, three-quarter sleeves. Your bracelets will thank you for that detail. The bust is ornamented with functional, silver tone, metal clasps that resemble frog closures. This built-in "jewelry" enhances the old-world qualities of kinship that the dress evokes. Behind the knotted closures, several small concealed snaps keep the bodice neat and prim. The bodice and that huge, voluminous skirt are accented by a wide self-fabric belt.
The dress zips at the side with a metal zipper. It's not lined, but the wool feels quite soft. It has nice drape. We have shown it with (and without) a crinoline.
It makes no difference if you're of Scottish descent when you're wearing this lovely dress. In fact, we wouldn't be surprised if the dress inspired people to refer to you as "Her Royal Cuteness." It's just that special.
Near perfect. One small hole in the back at the shoulder blade area. See last photo. It's really tiny. You can see Sabrina's bra strap through it. We keep telling her that she really should wear a black bra.
