Sharp and eye-catching, this 1950s sleeveless quilted cotton party dress is charcoal grey with novelty scenes of colonial life in New England, including school houses, homes, trees, huntsmen on horses, ladies and gentlemen, deer, and even some horseless carriages, too. The bodice and pockets are lined in cherry red cotton, providing a subtle pop of color. It pairs naturally with red, like our vintage celluloid apple choker (part of our personal collection and not included, of course!). Classic fit and flare silhouette, with fitted bodice, a nipped waist, and a super full skirt. The fabric is truly quilted, so it is crisp, sturdy, and has a lot of structure. Back metal zipper.
Designer label is New England Prints.
It's shown with our Jumblelaya crinoline, not included but offered separately in our store if desired.
All accessories (belts, jewelry, crinolines, pins, etc.) are for style inspiration only unless indicated.

Very good vintage shape with no flaws or issues that I could find. Sturdy, crisp, and bright. Freshly hand-washed and line-dried, ready to wear. This dress had some soil spots on the skirt when I got it; they all lifted with a single soak except for one about the size of a small marble that is still very faintly visible under close scrutiny. I think it will disappear with further cleaning, but it does not attract attention right now. Also found one tiny orange freckle below rear bodice underarm seam.
