Slim, short-sleeved pink shirtwaist dress from the early 1960s. Features vertical bodice tucks, small pointed collar, belt loops, and straight skirt with inverted back pleat. Possibly intended as a uniform, but nicely made of smooth cotton broadcloth, with darts, pinked seams, generous hem allowance, and other mid-century touches you don't see on modern clothing at any price. Unlined, comfortable, easy-care. From the Merritt estate.
Our modern belt is not included.
