Deep raspberry pink (nearly red) Irish linen shift. White floral embroidery has cut-outs on larger flowers, creating an eyelet effect. Short sleeves, bust darts, and princess seams leading to a single pleat below each hip. Feels wonderfully substantial, with silky lining. Metal Scott back zip with top hook&eye. Extremely well-made. Another high-quality garment from the Harris estate. From the 1960s.
A similar dress, in bright yellow with multi-color embroidery (and the same measurements) is available here.
