This product is unavailable
Description: This is a vintage 50s dress with white polka dots against a tomato red background. It is made with capped sleeves, pleated skirt and cinched waist. The dress has a high neckline with a small/narrow collar, notched in the front center. The dress does up with eight plastic buttons with a single rhinestone down the front of the dress - unfortunately, two of the buttons are missing their rhinestone, although this should be easy to replace. The dress is lined in off-white rayon taffeta - the skirt has an independent sewn-in slip. The dress cinches at the waist with a red vinyl belt. The dress has a 5 1/2” hemline that has been hand sewn in place - this could be let down for more length as there is no wear or fading to the bottom crease. The dress could be worn with a crinoline in order to create a full skirt effect.

It is in very good condition, with the exception of the aforementioned missing rhinestones, and a couple of small grayish marks toward the bottom of the skirt that would probably come out with a bit of work. Other than this, there are a couple of small spots where the dye has run slightly into a polka dot, really very minor. This dress is actually in great vintage condition and the problems mentioned are all quite negligible.
This is a wonderful 50s period dress - striking pattern.....
