This striped dress, with its brown and blue floral stripes pattern, is a stunner! This 1950s or early 1960s shirt dress is easy to wear and is such a flattering shape. The bodice is pleated to mid bust, and fastens with light brown plastic buttons. The dress fastens to the side with a metal zip and the skirt is pleated. The size label states "40", although the dress has been altered for a larger fit. A panel has been let into the right side bodice and the pleats have been let out to increase the waist by 2". This alteration has been well done, and I feel it doesn't detract from this lovely dress. This dress has no hem allowance and is put on over the head, so please consider these factors when comparing the measurements.
