1950's Italian Seashells Novelty Print Cotton Circle-Skirt Dress

About

This beautiful cotton sundress by "Giara D'Arno" is the perfect addition to any summer wardrobe. With its vivid orange seashells novelty-print and flawless styling, this garment has the casual elegance the 1950's were known for. The low-cut plunge, sweetheart petal-bust bodice is very flattering and effortless to wear. The hourglass nipped waistline is both ladylike and sexy, cut to showcase your natural assets! My favorite part is the sculpted cut-out circle-skirt which really sets the dress apart from others during this era. For every woman, novelty prints are a fashion must-have. It's a style for all ages, simply because it exudes an undeniably youthful flair, and yet remains incredibly timeless! Measurements Bust:36-37 inches Waist:28 inches Hips:Free Sweep Total Length:47 inches This vintage 1950's sundress is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working side metal-zipper. This item is over 50 years old and is truly stunning!
