*This dress has been a bit of a mystery to me, it is done in ‘40s style with a bright novelty print and ‘40s notions like a metal side zipper and decorative buttons although the modern look of the print makes me think that it was probably handmade in the early ‘70s
*Either way, this dress is just too cute for words with a bicycle print and gradient stripes along the hem and sleeves
*The bodice is fitted with a scoop neck, button front and decorative ruffles at the shoulders
*Fullish skirt with side pockets that are trimmed in little ruffles
*The cotton is a little bit sheer so a slip underneath may be required

Size Listed: None
Fits Like: S
Materials: Cotton
Tags: None, likely hand sewn
Condition: There is a small amount of brown staining at the left side, along the pocket ruffle and some on the skirt has well (shown in 4th photo). The stains are pretty light and did come up a lot with a soak so a cleaner may have some luck totally removing them. Either way, the stains are subtle and the dress is still in great and very wearable condition.

Measurements (please see my shop policies for a full explanation of measurements):
Shoulder width: 14 inches across
Bust: 17 inches across
