1960s Green Leaf Print Shirt Waister Dress
This fresh shirtwaist dress from the early 1960s is a stunning combination of an acetate rayon fabric with a white base, plus a vivid green leaf print.
There are marbled lucite buttons at the front, with a concealed snap stud at the top that is covered by the pussy bow necktie. It buttons down to the waist and then is fastened with an eye and metal hook. The pleated skirt is full and could accommodate a petticoat to add more volume. Original thread belt loops are intact, though no belt is included. It looks great without, but a simple white belt would be a nice addition.
Excellent, no issues or flaws to note.
