1950s Full Skirted Cotton Print Dress

What a wonderful dress! This puts all the things we love about a 50s dress into one fabulous piece! Made of a crisp 1950s cotton that has been screened with a gorgeous abstract pattern in blues, greens and purples. The top has that classic rounded shoulder and slim cut. The sleeves go to the elbow and are cut straight and somewhat wide. I love the high notched collar - it creates a pretty frame for the face, The waist nips in and you can emphasize it further with the original fabric covered belt, It curves over the upper hips and then a low wide skirt is attached with a precise series of knife pleats. The skirt has a built in underskirt or you can add a full crinoline like I have to get that classic cupcake silhouette! It is a beauty and it is in excellent condition!
