1950's dress has the most charming and whimsical poodle appliqués with precise tiny stitches keeping them in place. Poodles sit at a vanity table primping themselves. Another one shows a poodle next to an ornate swan legged sink shaving.
A third panel shows poodles on a couch with a gift, another with fan. A fancy table has dog bones and balls on it! Other dogs are playing drums and guitars.
One last one looks like a marjorette. There even is a little kitty tucked in on an upper part of the skirt as well.
Dress is a medium weight beige cotton, very sturdy and comfortable for wear. Dress is sleeveless and has a wrap feature at back bodice that buttons as well as has hook and eyes to secure closed. Skirt is pleated and super full.
Tag reads "Ann Kelly of California". Bodice length: 16 inches including waistband area. Condition: Excellent, freshly washed and steamed, ready to wear. I only mended out a tiny 1/4th inch thread bare spot under a pleat near waistline.
You would never detect this! Also I believe there is a previous mend near button but it just looks like a seam.
