1950s Cotton w Floral Applique Sundress

This is a charming and delightful early fifties sun dress! It's made from that crisp wonderful cotton that seems truest in these dresses from that time period. The skirt is knee length and wonderfully full - its all gathered in tiny teeny little pleats through the waist seam and then cascades out from there, The top is typical of the time period - side zip and a button front with the cutest pointed collar and short sleeves. This dress gets the full on feminine treatment though - the entire front bodice is corded to create leaves and stems and then a virtual flower garden of little embroidered flower heads are stitched into place giving it a 3D appearance! Lovely and in wonderful condition!
