1950s Classic Striped Floral Short Sleeve Cotton Shirtwaister Dress, by Sheevra, 36in Bust
When you dream of a 1950s print dress, this is classic you imagine! Set on a crisp white cotton background, the delicate sketched flowers in blue, pink and green are offset by grey and bordered by blue stripes, in-between are cute little dots and a row of grey and green daisies. This is one cute print, with bright and cheerful colours! All the usual 50s stylistic additions are there, nipped belted waist, full pleated skirt and short capped sleeves all designed to show your figure off to its best. The funky pointed turn back cuffs on the sleeves balance the skirt, and mirror the pointed collar. With all the colours in this print, your accessory choices are endless, but one thing is for sure, this dress will be the perfect addition to your Summer wardrobe!

• There are a couple of light marks to the dress, primarily on the bust, back of the collar and the skirt, as seen in the photos, these are not really noticeable. The belt pin is also started to rust and the loop is a little discoloured from this, and the waist has sightly darker marks underneath from the belt. All shown in photos.
