Happy like the sunshine vintage 1950s 50s dress.

✧ rainbow abstract print nylon chiffon + matching silky acetate lining
✧ shades of pink, orange, blue, yellow, + green
✧ pleated wraparound waistline with bow
✧ incredibly full circle skirt
✧ double skinny straps
✧ fastens up the back with a covered metal zipper

This dress is just like something that might naturally occur if a rainbow crashed into the sun and exploded back out into the universe; it really is that vibrant! A perfect birthday girl dress if ever I did see one, it would look remarkable paired with some simple ballet flats or a pair of your very highest heels. Perfect to wear as part of a wedding party, for a birthday fete, for skipping through fields of flowers and flexing your fairy wings, or for any other especially special event at which you wish to appear like a burst of sunshine to all who behold you. A very wonderful dress that will bring an ear-to-ear smile to your face every time you slip it on!

This beautiful dress was made over 50 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and very rare!!

Excellent vintage condition with no readily noticeable stains, tears, or mends. There are two runs/tears on the over-skirt, that due to all the wild colors and the fullness of the skirt, are not noticeable without knowing exactly where to look and really carefully hunting for them. There is also a faint mark on the skirt that blends into the pattern very closely and that you will never find without searching for it and again, knowing just where to look. As you can see in the photos, the hem of the nylon chiffon is uneven, but I think this was intentional, and also it is not as noticeable when the dress is worn without a crinoline. All in all, unless under extremely intense scrutiny, this dress appears brand new! It has been priced with both its flaws and its virtues in mind. :)
