Original 1950s 50s Vintage Emerald Green And White Stripe Summer Dress
This beautiful dress was made from a green and white striped cotton in the 1950s. The rounded neckline and dolman sleeves give the bodice plenty of volume. The diagonal stripe direction from the shoulder down toward the centre of the waist helps to accentuate the shape of the garment. The full A-line skirt is heavily darted at the waist, which results in the skirt falling into pleats further down towards the hem. A combination of vertical and horizontal stripes provide an additional level of interest to this wonderful garment. Inside, the dress is unlined to complement its lightweight nature and the dress closes with its original side zipper.
Bust: 34” with extra cup room to 36”
Length: 39 1/2” plus 4” hem
The dress is in very good condition, there is a repair to the fabric above the zipper, but it is very accomplished.
