Such an eye-catching and flattering dress with classic early 1950s styling. Think Lucille Ball!! The dress itself in excellent condition for its age. No notable flaws that I can see, the white linen cuffs are very slightly discoloured but I managed to get them much brighter than they were originally. I imagine a couple more washes will see them as bright as ever. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
