A lavender cotton, sleeveless 1950s day dress, this sleeveless cutie is unworn, deadstock vintage, with its original hangtags still attached. Construction details include an asymmetrical button front, a square neckline, and a single, large patch pocket on the right hip. The fitted bodice and straight skirt are shaped with darts. The large buttons are pearly white plastic. A single snap fastener closes the waist seam. The lightweight cotton fabric is unlined, and very crisp, since it has never been worn. The adorable aqua hangtag, (featuring a tiger!) tells us that it should require “little or no ironing”. In very good, unworn condition, this authentic vintage 1950s cotton dress has one tiny rust spot on the left front of the skirt, from its long storage. It is unlikely to be noticed when the dress is worn (see close-up photo). The only other issue to note is that, although the dress has belt loops, the original belt is missing. Our last photo shows the dress unpinned to the mannequin, to give a better idea of its actual size.
