This is a sunning dress from the mid 1950s. The fabric is cotton with a peculiar black print with what it seems to me like brick walls over white, black, blue, pink and turquoise stripes. The result of these colors and print is just amazing! The whole design of the dress is exquisite. She has a precious Peter Pan collar and a matching belt. Classic shape with a side metal zipper. This dress has no label but it is defenitely NOT homemade and it is a high quality garment probably made in France.
