This fabulous stripe cotton day dress is just perfect for the summer!
Made in the 1950's, it is a home sewn piece with some quirky construction points with some of the fabric pieced together in order to get the stripes running in the varying directions.
A close fitting bodice with a neat square neckline and button through design, it has a simple skirt with just two pleats in the front.
It will best fit a 35-28-38 but to ensure that it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own;
Flat bust 18"
Flat waist 14.5"
Flat hip 19"
Underarm to waist 7.5"

Good with some points to note;
- repair back right beck opening
- minor fade, only seen when you look inside the folds
- some pinhead marks on the left front from where someone marked button positions
