50s Vintage Novelty Print Rockabilly Shirtwaist Dress


Vintage 50s novelty print dress in a nice red and cream printed cotton. This shirtwaist dress buttons down the front to the waist. It has short sleeves, a fantastic sailor collar that drops to a low "v" in the back, front tucks, and side bust darts. The back is pleated in the center and the dress has a side metal zipper. The skirt is fully knife pleated and the original belt is with the dress. This dress is in beautiful condition, however it has an unfinished raw hem, one threaded belt loop is broken, and there are a few dark spots at the base of the dress on the back. The spots are well hidden within the folds of the dress. Dress is priced to reflect these conditions.
