The Ride Home | Easy Japanese 1940s Mandarin Collar Navy and White Checkered Shirtwaist Dress with POCKETS
Oh dear we have met another dress we've like to keep! This is a truly dangerous job, it is :D
This seems simple enough, navy blue with white checks. But we don't know why, it speaks to us so much. It also helps that mandarin collars and hip pockets are so our style.
Now... to measure it and see if it fits. Heehee.
No. But it was belted to show how it looks when worn with one. Please refer to the details below for exact measurements.
