I'm quite fond of this lovely mid-50s cotton day dress, and thrilled to say that it is a great fit for the taller vintagette It's cute, crisp and cheery. It is cotton with a button front, short sleeves and a white peter pan collar. I love the use of the mixed vertical and horizontal striped in the bodice/ The skirt is pinch pleated, and has a little fullness. A crisp spring frock.

The dress is has been hand laundered and freshly pressed - it is exceptionally crisp! Sadly, my iron went rouge on me, and caused a small area of the fabric at the lower back of the skirt to be lightly burned. (Last photo.) Because of this, it has taken me some time to list it, because I hate accepting that. The iron was destroyed in retribution.
