Day dress has short kimono-cut sleeves, scalloped neckline dotted with prong-set rhinestones, and wonderfully full skirt to wear with or without a crinoline. Smooth, lightweight cotton fabric in a dense pink and green floral with touches of red, white and lavender. Belt loops. Handy side seam pocket! Bodice has vertical darts front and back, center back seam. Skirt has front and back center seams. Metal Saf/Line side zip. Hangs beautifully, without adding bulk despite the full skirt. Very flattering. Unlined. Dress it up or down for any warm-weather occasion. From the 1950s and my personal collection.
Crinoline and belt(s) shown in photos are not included.
