Lovely cobalt blue print dress from the late 1950s or early 60s. The pattern is an "almost paisley," somewhat ethnic floral print. Pleated surplice empire bodice, underbust bow. Kimono-cut three-quarter sleeves. Princess seams into straight skirt with inverted kick pleat. Matching belt. Partially lined, with pinked seams and lingerie stays. Closes at back with long, metal Conmatic zipper and top hook&eye. From the marvelous Jamieson estate, spanning two centuries in style.
