Adorable 1950s Polka Dot Cotton Summer Dress in Striped Semi-Sheer Cotton with Piping Trim


  • Product Description

      Vintage 1950s dress is perky and fun in a wonderbread polka dot of bright aqua and yellow dots.  The cotton is fairly sheer, and has a subtle stripe in the weave. The short, cuffed sleeves, peter pan collar and button placket are are edged in bright blue cotton piping. The same trim joins the tiered of the gathered skirt.

      The white of this dress is brighter and fresher than the images show.

      This dress is freshly clean and ready to wear. I didn't realize until I tried to measure it that the buttons were really too small to stay closed. Since the last button was missing in any case, I have since replaced them, although I'll also send the grey rhinestone buttons shown. There is a mend to the cotton behind the last button by the waist. The seam under the right arm was sewn up by hand in the past. There is a little strain to the bust darts, not enough to detract. I find no other issues to note!
