This versatile early 1950s dress is made of aqua blue, linen-textured rayon with lace trim. The mostly straight, gently tailored silhouette is shaped by bust darts, as well as vertical darts above the below the waist seam. The skirt flares a bit below the hip, with inverted pleats to add some fullness. The short sleeves are accented with a wide band of floral lace, and a single lace flower trims the each side of the small collar. The dress fastens down the front with aqua clear lucite and rhinestone buttons—very shiny! It is unlined, and the mid-weight rayon fabric should be comfortable on all but the very hottest days of summer. There are small shoulder pads, which could easily be removed, if you prefer. This classic 1950s day dress is in very good condition, with these minor issues: a very faint spot on the bodice, a bit of fading along one skirt side seam, and it is missing its original belt (see photos).
