This is an amazing and rare to find dress from the late 1940s or very early 1950s. The fabric is cotton that feels like lightweight denim. Fabulous colors and an even more fabulous look! Precious sailor collar and two massive pockets. She closes with a side metal zipper.

Condition: This dress is in fabulous condition but it has a couple of things:
- The bottom hem has let down and the mark of the original sewing is visible (view photos). Not dramatic though, but the marks are there.
