Description

Made from a very pretty blue floral cotton poplin, using finishes true to the time. Seams are finished using the clean finish technique, hem is bound with bias binding & hand stitched in place. The bodice is fitted, with an interesting step detail on the scoop neckline. The front skirt has pleats which provide the classic 50’s shape.
