1950s Polkadot Plisse Pleat Patio Dress
A cheerful ray of sunshine right from the heart of 1950s fashion. This pale mustard day dress from Annetta has the most darling details, starting with the tiny plisse accordian pin pleats all around the V neckline and the matching pin pleated band at top of the skirt all the way around. It has a slight drop waist and a full skirt with a lovely drape. The pretty polkadot printed fabric is a very soft cotton blend. The dress closes with a metal lapped side zipper, and has its original matching belt.
We've shown her with and without petticoats and think she's lovely both ways. This listing is for the dress only, but if you'd like to add on a petticoat for extra floof, just send us a message and we'll make it happen.
Beautiful, wearable condition: there is 1 clumsy repair at underarm on right hand side, not visible when worn.
