Vintage from the 1980s


synthetic knit


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.
