Purple poppies with pink accents and green foliage spring from the white background on this 1980's shirt waist dress. Styled with shoulder pads, gathers at the shoulders and wonderful pleats in the upper back, 3/4 length cuffed sleeves, a fitted waist and full skirt, it's the perfect dress for spring/summer. And we love the hidden pockets at the waist!
Labels: d. Frank, 100% cotton, size 12 (see measurements below).
The dress is unlined and buttons up the front. The 3/4 length sleeves are cuffed. There's one patch pocket on the left bust and two hidden pockets in the side seams of the skirt. We love the pockets! The waist band has elastic in the back and cinches in with a matching belt and the skirt is pretty full.
Condition is very good/gently worn. There's a noticeable yellow/orange spot on the belt and one smaller but noticeable on the upper right sleeve (pictured) plus another tiny spot lower down on the same sleeve (there could be more tiny spots like this that I could have missed). See last few images.
