This vibrant 1950's floral dress, in a palette of pinks and yellows on a monochrome tulle design background, is the perfect piece for your everyday wardrobe.

The V shaped neckline of the dress is framed by a pointed notched collar. The simple shoulder line is set off by short capped sleeves. The fitted bodice is accented by central yellow mock button fastenings, that conceal the hook and eye fastenings beneath. The cinched in waistline, sets off the near full circle cut of the skirt, photographed here with a medium petticoat for added volume.
