Be a Bea | Vintage 1950s 1960s button-details V-neck Dress in Dusty pink and Horizontal stripes
Simple. Solid. Trustworthy. Those are the feelings this dusty-pink and white striped 1950s/60s dress give us.
With her consistent single pleat on each side, front and back. Neat and sincere.
We have never really called a dress sincere before. But we think it is quite suitable here. ;)
The buttons down the shoulders are just enough embellishment for her. Just so, you know?
All measurements are taken with the garment laid flat.
Please DOUBLE the measurements provided to get the approximate circumference measurements.
Alternatively, you can take a piece of your own clothing, lay it flat, measure it and make a comparison.

Hips: Up to 24in
Top Length: approx 16in

Lining: Top unlined. Bottom lined.
Transparency: Seems opaque, but as with most vintage garments, appropriate inner wear will help to keep things decent ;)
