BEAUTIFUL COTTON SHIRTWAIST DAY DRESS IN THE MID-CENTURY STYLE

DSC00660

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 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
