1950s preppy style vintage check dress


  • Description


This is a super red dress with a fine thread black check running through. There are no fabric labels but it has a good weight and drape. It has 3/4 cuffed sleeves and a round neckline with an inset panel at the neck and centre bodice. There is a faux bow at the neckline. The waist is seamed and the skirt is very full and flared from tight gathers under the waist line. The dress fastens with a side metal zip, and black feature buttons at the centre back bodice.
