This versatile early 1950s dress in navy blue linen-textured rayon with lace trim is deadstock vintage, unworn, with its original tags. 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 purple 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. The original belt is present, and this classic 1950s day dress is in excellent to mint condition, with no flaws to note.
