Sweet 1950's Carlye Iridescent Polished Cotton Bubble Dress



There are so many great design elements to this seemingly simple Carlye polished cotton dress. For starters, the fabric is a comfortable polished cotton with a jacquard style floral print set off by a bluish iridescent sheen. Move on to the classic full skirted shirt dress style with buttons down the front and generous side pockets and add a nipped hemline with organdy lining to create a modified bubble skirt. All wrapped up with a well placed bow in an unexpected spot. The dress is in excellent condition though the original satin belt shows age and could use some updating. Best fits a modern day size 4 with attention to the following measurements. Bust 32"-34" Waist 25" Hips 39" Shoulder Length Taken at Back 16" Total Length From Shoulder to Hem 39.75" Length From Shoulder to Waist 15.25"
