Marilyn | Vintage 1940s 1950s red polka dot Collared shirt dress
Some would say every girl needs a little black dress. But we say, you may also just need 1 happy, red one! ;)
It looks to be hand-made, and beautifully so. The fabric has almost-invisible red dots that give it a wonderful feel. It adds texture, movement and also just a very slight shimmer.
Collared just so, with a V that is elegant instead of vulgar, and slight gathers at the shoulders to enhance the feminine form.
Closes with a metal zip at the side.
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.
