1960s Blue Floral Dress With Double Pleated Skirt - Bust 96-99 cm
Pretty aqua, blue, green floral dress has a shaped neckline trimmed with three bows beneath. The straight, below knee length skirt has interesting double box pleats, where each pleat has been folded twice, one fold on top of the other. They are permanent pleats. Closes at the back with a metal zipper. The original tie has been lost but the former owner has added a navy grosgrain ribbon which works well. The brand label has been removed but it bears a US union label. No fabric label either, but it is a slightly textured synthetic, probably polyester - 1960s.

Very good. There are a couple of faint brownish marks on the skirt, totally unnoticeable on the busy floral design, and a small spot on the back of the bodice. I have not attempted to remove these marks. The original belt is missing.
