Sweetest late 1940s or early 1950s day dress.

✧ by Wildman -- a custom sized early American label
✧ sheer soft cotton with a bubble print in tones of muted greys + blues
✧ crossover button ascot
✧ five large pearlescent plastic buttons
✧ gored skirt for shape
✧ fastens up the side with a covered metal zipper + up front bodice with buttons

This dress is so very very sweet, and so easy to wear! I adore the whimsical print made more subtle by the use of muted greys and blues, and the crossover ascot neckline is almost too darling for words. It would be perfect for day with just a pair of simple flats and perhaps a fuzzy little cardigan, or trussed up a bit for evening with a pair of stacked heels and a bit of a lacy slip peeking out the bottom. As this dress is sheer, you will want to wear it with a slip. Such a wonderful piece, and one that you will find yourself reaching for again and again!

This beautiful dress was made over 60 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and very rare!!
