1950s Sweet Rick Rack Sun Dress

A wonderful 1950s dress with an amazingly full skirt and the most gorgeous checked front pattern! The back is a solid grey but the front has tiny strips of white ribbons sewn onto it in precise little rows. These create a beautiful grid or checked feel! It is made of that wonderful 1950s cotton. The waist nips in, the skirt is as full as full can be and it is sleeveless. The little cut edged early plastic buttons are the cream on this cupcake of a dress! Excellent condiiton

Unlined and closes with the buttons down the front. There is a teeny area of discoloration on the back but it is faint and you would not notice it once on.Styled with a crinoline under it that is not included.
