This charming, shirt-waisted, day dress was recreated from a vintage dress from 1935. Daisy has a lot of details found in designs from this period.
The bodice has gathers that are set into the shoulder seam and tucks at the waist. It closes with 4 black faceted buttons and has a shaped collar. The front of the skirt has six pleats top stitched in black and then left untacked below the knee to serve as kick pleats. This blue, white & black floral print cotton dress has puffed sleeves and upturned cuffs. The back of the bodice has an action pleat that creates a tailored line while allowing for full range of movement for the arms.
Blue, black & white cotton broadcloth:
Machine washable in delicate cycle with cold water or dry cleanable.
