Utterly darling vintage 1950s 50s dress.

✧ custom made -- one of a kind!
✧ red, white, + burgundy plaid cotton with black geometric design
✧ eight enormous working buttons down the front -- 1 ¾ inches in diameter
✧ cuffed elbow length sleeves
✧ tight pleats at waistline for added fullness to the skirt

Oh goodness me is this a special dress! The buttons on this thing are simply beyond belief; they are hands down the largest buttons that I have ever seen on a dress, and their asymmetrical placement and the fact that they actually work and are not merely decorative makes them almost too good to be true! This frock would be gorgeous for day with a simple pair of ballet flats, or dressed up for evening with a pair of your highest heels and a playful glimmering clutch. It would be perfect to wear to a birthday fête, for an Autumn afternoon traipsing about town, for Sunday brunch, or for any other especially special or sweet event. A marvelous frock, and so so unique!

This beautiful dress was custom made over 50 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!!
