This dress is almost too adorable for words! I adore the cheerful polkadot print and the softness of the brushed cotton -- this truly is a dress that will be as much a pleasure to wear as it will be a pleasure to look at! It would be darling with just a pair of simple ballet flats or with a pair of your highest pumps and a dab of your reddest rouge, and will be perfect to wear for flea market trips, for an afternoon wedding, for first dates (or fiftieth dates), or for any other especially special or sweet event. An absolute sunbeam of a dress!
This beautiful dress was made over 50 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and very rare!!
please note: the belt shown was used for styling purposes only and is NOT included. There most likely was once a matching belt, but it is no longer with the dress. Dress was photographed over a crinoline for added fullness.

There is a bit of soiling to the bottom button, a tiny yellow spot on the back of the collar that is only noticeable if looked for, and a few pinpricks here and there around the waistband. Otherwise, just about perfect! This dress has been lovingly handwashed and is ready to wear!!
