This is a truly stunning dress from the 1950s. Fabric is rayon/barkcloth in broken white with a fabulous print showing a scene of palm tress at dawn with shelfs. Metal zipper on the side. Wow! It has been pined to show fit. This dress is probably homemade.

Condition: This dress has signs of use and a hole on top of each shoulder due to the snapbutton that it has on the inner of the strap. No other holes or stains. A couple of stitching-repais on the waist seam, but nothing important. Note that this brownish effect at the very bottom of the skirt on the first photo is just an effect of the light. The bottom is not dirty or brownish.
