1940s Cherry Red and White Polka Dot Light Cotton Halter Dress, 35in Bust
This dress is so wonderfully feminine and cute, a perfect little dress for a Summer picnic in the park! From the late 1940s, it is made from a bold red light and fine cotton with tiny Swiss dot style spots all over in white, a classic colour combination. The halter style back is unusual but great for those hot days and is finished off with a wonderful large lace panel to the front. Stick with the colour theme and add some white accessories, or why not add a nautical blue into the mix. But one thing is for sure, you need a massive sun hat to truly do this dress justice!
