This darling little dress from the 1940s or early 50s is too sweet for words! It will look wonderful paired with flats and a fitted black cardigan for day, or with a black satin sash and sky high heels for night. And naturally, the red and white color scheme will make this dress an absolute shoe-in for any Valentine's Day dates or playdates! Absolutely adorable!

This dress was custom made over 60 years ago -- it is truly a treasure and one of a kind!! There is not another one like it in all the world!

please note: the sash shown in some of the photos was used for styling purposes only and is not included.
