1950s Printed cotton full skirt day dress with floral appliqué
A very pretty and substantial 1950s dress in a lined cotton sateen, with print of pale pink and yellow daisies with grey 'branches'. against off-white background. Intricately shaped fitted bodice, with shaped dropped waist and very full skirt lined in cotton- there's a lotta lotta skirt! The neck and dropped waist area has been individually hand appliquéd with more pink daisies, back metal zip. Curiously there are pop studs to the inner neckline, so I imagine there was originally a removable neck placket or similar?
Chest fit 36"
Waist of garment 27"
37" hip area, at 7" down from waist
39.5" mid shoulder to hem
Excellent structural condition, inside bodice lining has some gentle discolouration, but has been freshly cleaned. Back darts have been taken in and let out leaving V slight evidence but nothing noticeable when worn
