50s 60s Day Dress Swing Skirt Earth Colors Print Women's Vintage Large VFG
This vintage dress is perfect for those in-between days, when you want something light in weight but not light in tone. It dates to the late 1950s into early 1960s. The scoop neck bodice is gently fitted with darting, meeting a swingy four-gored skirt at the waist. The short raglan sleeves and the yoked neckline are constructed using several layers of fabric, giving more substance and structural support.
SIZE: No size label
|Bodice length from shoulder seam
FABRIC/COLORS: A complex and deep print - I see the shapes of different kind of tropical leaves and ferns, done in several shades of brown and orange against an abstract background of greens. The fabric is lightweight woven - most likely cotton based on a fiber burn test.
TAGS: No tags. I believe this was probably custom made, as a good skill level.
CLOSURES: The dress closes with a sideseam metal zipper. It comes with a self fabric belt with slide-style buckle. It is shown in some photos with an orange suede belt from my closet - not included with purchase.
CONDITION: I have repaired a few small sections of open seam.
