This is the ultimate flower-camoflauge dress, walk into a purple field and disappear!
I just adore the artistic style busy print of this dress -purple and grey flowers fill every single inch of space. This early 1950's dress is made from a very, very lightweight rayon (perhaps blended with silk) fabric, with just a hint of sheen. It has a mock, half shirtdress style fit and flare silhouette, with short sleeves and two blended scoop hip pockets. The bodice features a faux button-up placket which once had rhinestone-centered plastic buttons, but all the rhinestones were missing, so I've replaced the original buttons with these whimsical, yellow & black bee buttons. It should be noted that this dress has no opening, therefor the only way to put it on is to shimmy it over your head! The fabric has received some stress due to this and there are some areas of stress, with about four of the worst areas having been backed/strengthened with another semi-sheer fabric. Other than these issues the dress is in very good condition, with no flaws to note. There are also no labels or maker's marks present. Please review photographs for full details.
