Right on the heels of that gorgeous hand-knit dress shown yesterday I discovered this beauty, very faithful to the classic shirtwaist style of the 1940’s, 1950’s and early 1960’s. It’s of a sheer cotton, with pretty floral embroidery. Perfect to wear with a pretty, but plain, cotton lingerie slip.
It is beautifully-tailored and in perfect condition. I suspect that it is a more recent retro style, but cannot date it exactly. No label. No matter, it is so lovely that I’m over the moon. I may change out the buttons to old pearl ones but otherwise am completely happy with this discovery. Glad to stay in the 1950’s . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
