50s Bright Striped Wrap Shirtwaist Dress

SKU: 00361-030
Sorry, this item has sold.

We call this one the circus shirtwaist. Bold, festive stripes of red, white, black, yellow and green, strategically angled to flatter your figure. Kimono-cut short cap sleeves. Three large covered buttons at bodice and set-in waistband. Interior wrap styling with self ties. Flattering curved, slightly high neckline. Gently gathered skirt. From the 1950s and the Charlotte M. estate.

Labels: none (Charlotte's daughter tells us that her mother's wardrobe was entirely store-bought)

Fiber/Care: unknown, feels like a cotton/linen blend (lightweight and slightly textured), washable

Condition: small spots at lower bodice front and back (see photos) may lift with more aggressive treatment (we gave it only a gentle wash), covered buttons are coming "uncovered" (could be redone, if desired, using hidden fabric from interior wrap). There are no missing buttons (two uppermost buttonholes are decorative)

*This dress is freshly laundered and ready to wear.*

Garment Measurements:
    bust: 36" (Bebe is 35" around, and the dress is not clipped)
    bodice: 17" to top of waistband
    waist: 27"
    hips: free (50"+)
    skirt length: 32.25" from top of waistband
