Lovely long-sleeved nylon crepe shirtwaist dress from the early 1960s. Cool, crisp, easy-care fabric in a gentle shade of pink with white lace trim. Jewel neck with permanent bow, functional five-button "tuxedo-style" front placket with top snap closure, as well as a nylon side zipper. Bust, vertical, and shoulder darts for shaping. Single-button cuffs. Pleats below the waist give the knee-length skirt gentle fullness, to wear with or without a small crinoline (not included). Deep hem allowance. Note the impressive workmanship on this dress. Every seam is neatly finished. From the Mullins Collection.
