Vivid Blue Piped Vintage 50s Full Skirt Cotton Dress -
It's no secret. We love our cotton dresses from the 50s, especially ones like this with a few notable details. How about those cute ivory colored shoulder ties? Sassy! And that same crisscross tie is repeated on the bodice. There are also a couple of nifty piped mock pockets on the huge full skirt. We're not showing this with a crinoline, but you might want to wear one if you like to show off a very full skirt.
This vintage dress is made of nice polished cotton. There's a slight sheen to it and a very very fine pinstripe that's extremely subtle. You'll only notice that in very bright light. The capper is that this it's a nice vivid shade of bright blue. The dress zips at the side.
If you share our love for crisp cotton vintage dresses, this one is unbeatable. It's adorable and really fun to wear.
A thin pull (like a broken dotted line) on the bust. It runs from the underarm almost to the center tie on the bodice. See last photo. This is a manufacturing defect, I believe. It is most visible near the armpit and less so as you move towards the center of the bodice. There are a few picks in fabric near top of the side zipper. Doesn't show when worn.
Polished CottonFabric Notes:
Belt is not original to the dress. It's a braided cord that's made of cotton in tan and bone color to match the ties. Looks really cute!
