Vintage 50s Day Dress Watercolor Print Pastels Penney's Brentwood Medium VFG
This vintage 1950s dress might be in the top 10 of my all-time favorite day dresses! The bust area is shaped with soft pleating along the shoulder seam and vertical darts at the waist. The bodice is styled with a vee-neck and cap sleeves with a jaunty triangular cuff anchored by big buttons. The four-gore skirt has lovely swing. There is a single inset side seam pocket on the right.
SIZE: No size label
|Bodice length from shoulder seam
FABRIC/COLORS: A lovely watercolor impressionist style print in soft shades of lavender, blue, aqua and pink. The fabric is cotton in a medium weight twill weave, soft surfaced, but feels sturdy.
TAGS: Penney's Brentwood
CLOSURES: The dress unbuttons completely in front - it closes with seven large pearly plastic concave shank buttons plus a snap at the waist. There are belt loops but no belt. The dress is shown in some photos with a belt from my closet it is not included with purchase.
CONDITION: There is mild overall fading, which softens the colors a bit. No stains, holes, tears or other issues.
