60s Day Dress Green Floral Print$21.00
DETAILS: An comfortable and cute day dress for summer wear, and in a larger size! This probably dates to the early 1960s (possibly late 50s), and was a classic look for a housewife. The bodice has a rounded jewel neckline and is fitted with vertical darts into the waist seam. The short sleeves are kimono style. The flared skirt has a few soft pleats in front and shaping darts in back - there is a small kick pleat at the hem. The dress is shown in some photos with a white belt from my closet - it is not included with purchase.
