Vintage shirtwaist 1950s day dress in deep red, brown and shades of gray abstract print. Details include short sleeves, a unique keyhole type neckline, cuffed short sleeves and deep red buttons. Breezy comfortable easy-care cotton that you could wear all day. Wrinkles won't even show due to the pattern. This dress has a bit of western style that would work with a nice pair of cowboy boots. Wear it to your next nightclub country hoedown with a wide belt.

Top is relatively fitted (depending upon your size) and the bottom skirt has knife pleats for a flirtatious fit.

I'm stumped about the print on the fabric. The only connection between the items is maybe the Renaissance and all the discoveries and advancements in science and art. I see a couple of very abstract maps, one is a map of Italy. There are parts that look like spice bottles, wine goblets and sundials. Another section features an hourglass and periscope. Another shows what I think is a metronome and ancient models of the solar system. With this item you get a nice combo of a mystery, a conversation piece and a cute dress!

♡ Excellent vintage condition. I imagine the dress originally had a matching belt, which is no longer. Dress has no holes or worn areas. It may have never been worn. Original buttons.

No tags - I believe was home made / hand made to a unique pattern.

Shoulder seam to shoulder seam (across top in front) = 15"
Bust (armpit to armpit X2) = 40"
Waist (laid flat x2) = 32"
Hips - free
Length (shoulder to hem) = 42"
