  • Vintage from the 1950s
  • Materials: cotton

- Very lovely vintage 1950s handmade (no labels) cotton floral summer dress with dropped waist & tiered full skirt.

- Beautiful Mid-Century style swing dress or tea dress, or a great Rockabilly look.

- Great shape which fits in at the waist & flares out in tiers, nice ruched feature at the top & the black piping contrasts well with the pink & grey floral pattern.

- Just one tiny mark which I have pictured (& which may wash out) other than that no stains or damage. It's a bit dusty from storage so could do with a wash to brighten up & a good press. (which I will do if i don't get a quick sale!)

- Fastens at the back with a fully functional metal zip plus hook & eye.

- Can be worn with or without a net petticoat underneath.

- My own approximate measurements (laid flat) are: shoulder to shoulder 13", armpit to armpit (laid flat) 16", waist 28", length of dress from top of shoulder to bottom 45" (no turn down).

- A really perfect '50s dress.

A bit of a late review, but I love this so much! I have been wearing it as a dress with t shirts underneath, I was worried about it being seethrough but it isn't at all. I wear this when I'm having a bad day because I always feel better and more confident, its such a pretty shape xx

I haven't actually made this yet because I had to order the needles and they've been sent by snail. But I can't wait to start on it, it looks wonderful.

Love this skirt. Wore it on repeat for a week. Really great way to dress up a plain t-shirt. Thank you.
