Vintage green polkadot dress – cute curvy 50s XL

Vintage green polkadot dress – cute curvy 50s XL

This is such a cool full skirted summer dress. It’s hand made, and the seam at the bottom is unfinished and still pinned with the original pins. There’s no pinking or serging, and because of the “new look” full skirt, I am pretty sure this dates to the 50s and was never worn. It’s made of a sheer synthetic and unlined.
My model got a tiny spot of red lipstick on the inner collar in taking it off (I’ve not bothered to try to rub it out). Otherwise, it’s flawless and in amazing vintage condition.
