  • Vintage from the 1950s
  • Materials: cotton

- Stunning early '50s very stylish cotton shirt waister striped dress.

- One of the loveliest mid century dresses I've ever seen, and not sure the photos do it justice!

- The make is 'Barbette' and the fabric is a nice cotton in striking grey, red & bright yellow stripes.

- It appears crisp and almost 'as new' and certainly hasn't been worn much.

- No stains or damage at all.

- The only issue is that sadly there is no belt (there are loops) but could easily be teamed up with something that would work, I think I would go for red accessories if it fit me!

- Fastens with metal zip at the side and buttons at the front.

- Very stylish peplum with button detail on the hip, and the same shaped detail with buttons at the top.

- No size label, my own measurements (fastened & laid flat) are:
Shoulder to shoulder 15"
Armpit to armpit 18"
Waist 14" across
Hips 17" across
Length of skirt 29.5"
Length of dress 46"
Width of skirt across bottom 31"

-Absolutely perfect!

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.
