50s 60s Day Dress Vintage Plaid Checked New Old Stock M/L

Be the first to wear this too-cute rockabilly vintage day dress, probably dating to the early 1960s! Fitted bodice with short sleeves - I love how the plaid is turned on the diagonal and used as a design element for the rounded neckband and front placket that goes down to the hem. A jaunty bodice tab is anchored by a large flat black button. The slim skirt has some small pleats in front to soften the tummy area.
