Fun in Monotone | Vintage 1940s sleeveless summer dress with Polka dots Stripes and Morning Glory Flowers
With all that colour flying around this summer, something we just need a little break in monochrome. And the good 'ol black and white is a no-brainer.
Loving this light cotton sleeveless summer dress and the fun it's having in black and white. The vertical stripes are actually little polka dots lining up and the skirt is filled with morning glory flowers in increasing sizes from smaller at the waist to larger ones near the hem.
Comes in a light almost like seersucker cloth material.
With delish white rounded square buttons down the front!
Pinned?: No. But the drawstring was cinched to show it looks when tied.
