This original 1950's ink blue cotton dress with a black coloured novelty print of ships approaching a port and passers by waving, is the perfect piece for your vintage wardrobe.
The square shaped neckline is framed by a simple shoulder line and short capped sleeves. The fitted bodice sets off the cinched in waistline and elegant dropped skirt line, which is set off by a black satin ribbon and side rhinestone embellished decorative buckle and bow. The skirt boasts gathered pleats that radiate from beneath the satin ribbon and drape into a near full circle skirt, photographed here with a medium petticoat for added volume, completing this dress in an iconic 1950's silhouette.
