Adorable cherry red vintage 1960s very full skirt dress with lovely details and a fabulous hand-screened gray and white floral print on the skirt. Very Mad Men.

The bodice is almost a shelf bust, having the desired shelf bust effect as a result of the cuffed seam right under the bust, which has a long attached tie on the sides, tying into a pert bow on the back.

LOVE the clever bust darts that were worked into the large tab that extends below the bust, and set off with a large covered button.

So we have a fitted bodice, nipped waist, and very full skirt with *loads* of tiny pleats. The perfect 1950s and early 60s silhouette. Plus it has that wonderful color combo of cherry red, gray, and white. So classic mid century, almost atomic.

You'll feel like a million bucks in this little number, and are sure to turn many heads. (Did you know men in particular are very attracted to red dresses? Well, now you do.)

Need help figuring out if it will fit you? Just click on the Contact link at the bottom and I'll be happy to help.

The Condition: Very good to excellent. Worn rarely, if at all; sizing still in the fabric. Just a few minor and unobtrusive flaws. On the back left side at waist there's a manufacturer's error of a few inches of lighter colored stitching showing. The silkscreen ink is cracking a bit on some of the flowers. There are a few small faint black smudges on the top of the left cap sleeve. Ran out of photo space to show that. Feel free to message me to see it, if it's important to you.

The Shipping: Delivered by cheery cherries, I mean Priority mail, within the U.S.; International First Class to Canada, and International First Class to Everywhere Else.

Yoohoo, International buyers! Your country may charge you customs fees on your purchase, which you're responsible for paying. Just so you know ahead of time and aren't unpleasantly surprised :)
