This 50s inspired shirtwaist dress is truly deja vu! We have the nearly exact design in a 1950s version, though this particular dress is a 1980s copy. It has a specially pieced wheel of stripes to the back bodice that creates a unique design reminiscent of an umbrella's striped panels. It has a notched lapel, 3/4-length sleeves with elasticized bands & graceful flared bells, and a flirty full skirt.

Items are in US sizes. We list modern sizes in titles and in the Size heading. We list vintage sizes in the Label heading.

To get a modern size from a vintage garment, we take actual bust, waist, and hip measurements and translate that to a modern size equivalent. Inches are standard, even though sizes between different companies and eras aren't.

All measurements listed for bust, waist, and hip are the maximum body measurements that will fit the item. These measurements already have ease subtracted and they are not actual fabric widths. To get actual fabric widths add 2 inches at the bust, 1 inch at the waist, and 2 inches at the hip.

We prepare your garments as meticulously as we would for ourselves, but please know that vintage clothing has a past, and we may be unaware of allergic traces that sensitive individuals could find problematic.
