This is a 50s-60s era California shirt waist dress, with lots of pintuck detail.
Classic gem, this dress is, made by one of my favorite design labels from that era.

Vintage label: Norman Waitt - California
size label: none (estimated US size range 8, 10 12)

This fab dress is made from a silk /silklike fabric which rustles when you walk. Fabric could be a silk / rayon blend, but I cannot tell for sure. The dress is not otherwise lined.

The front bodice of the dress has rows of pintucking, from collar to waist. The embroidered chevrons accent the tucking, using a tan and brown color on an all black background.

The bodice has a roomy shirtwaist fit with side bust darts and a traditional shirt collar yoke in back with pleated easment.

The lower skirt has a fixed waist (no stretch), with deep box pleats all around to give it fullness. It has a generous 3.00-inch deep hem, and wide belt loops. The original covered belt is missing.

The sleeves are faced inside for turning a cuff, and should come to the elbow.

Garment closes in front with three (3) black pearlized plastic buttons and a hook and eye at the waist. Dress has no pockets.

CONDITION: This dress has been worn but is in excellent condition. No tears, stains or loose seams.

Bust (arm pit to pit): upto 43-inches
Waist: 30-inches
Shoulder to waist: 16.50 inches
Sleeve length from under arm: 9-inches
