Adorable late 1940s to early 1950s New Look day dress in pastel purple, aqua and yellow striped cotton. It has a fitted pleated waist and short sleeves. There are buttons above the waist and a side metal zipper. The hem is very wide and could be let down to add length, see left side of last photo for picture of the hem width.
Dress is in excellent condition, there is one old mend along the dart under one arm and there is a natural slub in the cotton on the front, this is not damage, but part of the weaving process, both shown in last photo
