Vintage 1950s orange and white cotton day dress with wonderful abstract linear floral-inspired print. This gorgeous dress features an open collar, two functioning buttons on the front and a nipped in, pleated waist.
The dress has a side zip which is fixed at the top (so it doesn’t undo right up to the armpit but about an inch below, which gives a little less wriggle room – but – you can also undo the front buttons for fitting).
There is no care label but the material feels like a cotton and linen mix, and has a woven texture. This is an absolutely gorgeous dress (the photos don’t do it justice!). Any questions please feel free to get in touch!
