New Old Stock 50s 60s Plaid Day Dress Shirtwaist Style Vintage Shift Large Nancy Frock Dan River VFG
This New Old Stock day dress is late 1950s to 1960s vintage. It is the kind of dress that every American homemaker wore - simple, comfortable and easy to care for. With modern eyes, we can see nicely done details that are not found in today's "Fast Fashion". The silhouette is a simple shift, with fit adjusted and waist defined by use of the matching sash tie belt. The upper bodice has nice shirtwaist-type details, with a flyout collar, yoking front and back, and short sleeves that can be rolled or cuffed to the preferred length. The dress has a large patch pocket below the waist on the right.
