1950s Red Check Shirt Dress
An original vintage gem. This darling hot pink day dress from the 1950s is a blast of summer joy. Made from the sweetest check/gingham/plaid crisp cotton in vibrant sherbert pink colours, and finished with 12 monther of pearl effect buttons all down the front. So wearable, can be styled up or down for almost any occasion.
The best bit might be the interesting notched square neckline (so flattering) and the original matching belt and belt loops.
Remarkable condition, especially for a lady of her age. Homemade with love a generation ago to a high standard, tiny mark on back shoulder otherwise excellent condition.
