This is a cute spring and summer dress with a classic, retro 1950s style. The bodice is a very light lavender with subtle pink, yellow, white and lilac designs. The material is a nubby weave that looks a lot like linen, but I'm pretty sure it is a synthetic and natural blend. The skirt is made with a mid weight white woven polyester and this should be worn with a slip, as it is slightly transparent. The dress features a lovely peter pan collar, slightly puffed sleeves, a skirt that rests just below the knees, a sash belt and elastic waist, and a button up shirtwaist design. This could also be hemmed shorter to make an adorable mini dress.
