Vintage 1950s Shirtwaist Dress with semi-full skirt in a navy blue shantung finish rayon/cotton blend. The well-made dress has collared neckline with a center "V" that has stays in along V to help it lay flat. The dress then buttons down entire front with same fabric covered buttons. 3/4 length sleeves have roll up cuffs with same buttons. The upper back has a fantastic soutache trim design with buttons. Dress is shown over my small display crinoline but would sway beautifully on its own.

Label: na but has union label used between 55 and 63.
Fabric: rayon or rayon.cotton blend
Size: Vintage size tag 18 but closer to todays medium or med-large - please go by garment measurements below:

* Bust: underarm to underarm - 44" (bodice is full)
* Across back shoulders - 16"
* Waist: 30.5"
* Hips: 46"
* Center back length: 46.5"
* Belt fits 30.5" waist to 32.5" waist.

Condition: The dress is in excellent condition. The belt shown with dress may have been mixed up with another when dress was sold - although the color matches OK, it is another texture - it works but you could also substitute one of your own.
