This dress is almost too sweet for words! The horse print is so darling, and the shade of red so vibrant that it is sure to bring a smile to your face every time you slip it on, as well as to the faces of all who behold you in it! While this dress is made in a very authentic 1950s fashion (including pinked seams on the inside) my instincts tell me that it may have been made later on (but definitely no more recently than the 1980s.) At any rate, it is the prettiest little horse print frock there ever was, and it will look marvelous worn with flats and a little cardigan for day, or dressed up with a pair of snappy heels and a dab of your reddest rouge for evenings out. A very special dress that will have you spinning, twirling, and skipping about everywhere you choose to wear it!
This beautiful dress was custom made over 20 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and one of a kind! There is not another one like it in all the world!!
please note: this dress was photographed over a small crinoline for added fullness.

Excellent vintage condition with no stains, tears, or visible mends. There are some marks on the inside of the skirt close to the waistline that do show through the tiniest bit, but as it is faint and hidden in the gathers of the skirt, it is not at all noticeable when the dress is worn. There are pinpricks where a set of darts was let out in the back, but this is very subtle and not at all eye catching. Absolutely gorgeous!
