50s Cotton Day Dress Rickrack Trim Vintage Blue Floral M L

Construction details suggest this sweet day dress is not quite as vintage as it looks, but the styling and fabric are pure 1950s! Deep sweetheart neckline, curvy fitted bodice with dropped waist, full skirt. Neckline and capped dolman style sleeves are trimmed in two shades of blue rickrack. Very cute!
