An absolutely charming and crisp 1950s dress with very uniquely styled print. The palette evokes an undersea mood - browna nd teal and orange and yellow on a pale seagreen ground. The wood cut print is intentionally styled and somewhat bizarre - strange orange fish. A women in harem pants with seaweed hanging from her sleeves. Creatures I think are best described as sea monkeys. The cut is flattering, with a tuxedo pleated bodice and curving neckline. The skirt is tightly pinch pleated. The dress closes up the front with a hook at the waist and self-fabric buttons. The original self-fabric belt is present.
Label: None Present
Condition: Good, as is
This dress is clean and ready to wear. There is some yellowing at the interior back of the neck, and the bodice is slightly faded compared to the skirt.. When I took the photos, I had thought the waist was all hand stitched - it turned out to be a bodice length adjustment that I have taken out, but you can see some difference in color where it was. The bottom button is a replacement. I find no other issues to note!
