Lovely late 1940s to early 1950s New Look day dress in an aqua blue, rust red, and brown floral striped print. It has a fitted waist and dolman sleeves with ruching and turned cuffs. Accordion style micro pleats below the waist at the upper portion of the skirt. There is a side metal zipper. Not lined. This dress is in excellent condition.
