Cheerios or doughnuts? Whichever breakfast item you prefer, the circular print on this 1950s cotton dress is cute! The design of white and green, hollow-centered circles on a navy blue background is echoed by the half-circular loops of print fabric used to trim the white piqué “bib” collar and the diagonal pockets. A narrow band of white piqué fabric encircles the high neckline, ending in a tiny bow at the back of the neck. The dress has cap sleeves and a full, flaring skirt, below the fitted waist seam. Although belt loops are present, the original belt is missing—a plain white belt would look great! The lightweight cotton print fabric is unlined. Unusually, the dress fastens at the left side seam, not with a zipper, but with an inverted pleat and a single button (see photo). This true vintage, full-skirted 1950s cotton dress is in almost-excellent condition, the only thing to note a couple loose stitches at the waistband (see close-up photo of right-hand pocket).
