Sorry, this item has sold.

Perfect little day dress from the 1950s or early 1960s could easily be dressed up for a party. Crisp, pale-blue fabric with a slight sheen, embroidered at bodice with blue and olive-green floral in a lattice pattern. Short sleeves and jewel neckline are piped in olive. Full skirt is pleated along the nipped waist. Thread loops (but no belt). Closes at back with metal Nynco zip with top hook&eye. Unlined, and somewhat sheer. Shown with and without a crinoline, not included. Look at the depth of that hem allowance! You won't see that luxurious use of fabric on a modern dress at any price. Union made in the U.S.A.

Labels: only a 1955-'63 ILGWU tag remains

Fiber/Care: unmarked, nylon/cotton blend, feels wonderful and is washable

Condition: tiny pull at upper back of skirt as shown. original belt is missing (ours shown in photos is not included). we replaced the missing thread eye.
