True Vintage 1950s Shirtwaister Dress

By Gingham Girl, USA.


True vintage 1940s/50s stripe dress. 

All cotton featuring attractive collar, shirt cuffed sleeves, button front.

The skirt hem has been tacked up but could easily be taken down if you prefer a longer midi skirt.

This dress is in good condition. 

Tiny brown dot to front waist (barely noticeable).




I would estimate this dress to best fit a UK8- 10, depending on required fit but please look at measurements below:
