80s Vintage Shirtwaist Dress
80s Vintage Shirtwaist DressA classic shirtwaist style dress that has me totally perplexed as to when it may have been made. I believe it is from the 80s, but possibly later, but in the 40s style. The bodice of this dress is very sheer. It has a small shoulder yoke, a pleated front, and 5 buttons. The long sleeves have a one button cuff. The skirt has front pleats, a front zipper, and is lined. The back is one piece and is gathered at the yoke and has elastic in the waist. There are threaded loops for a belt but the belt is missing.
