Two darling dresses tonight, neither of which could be passed up. Both are eBay finds, so hop to it if you're interested, all right?
First up is this true red cotton shirtdress in a fun red, black, and white print. It has a really lovely detail on the back - a pleats with a button tab. Cute! The sleeves are another fine point, at a 3/4 length and cuffed. Very charming and "finished".
Now, this is definitely a larger size, a rare thing in such pretty vintage frocks. The bust fits up to a 42-44, the waist up to 37, and the hips of course are full. More in-detail measurements are available on the auction page. The bidding starts at just $5.50, with very reasonable shipping prices too. Auction ends next Tuesday, March 25.
Next up is another cotton dress, this one from the 1940s, in a lively daisy print - perfect for a Preakness outing to Pimlico, perhaps? The buttons and belt are original and covered in matching fabric, and there's very sweet velveteen ribbon detailing on the sleeves and collar (in fact, on the collar, the ribbon is finished off with a pretty little daisy applique).
The sizing on this dress is a little oddballish: a bust of 40, but 30 waist. Still, it would be a delightful addition to your wardrobe for this year, and a bust adjustment shouldn't be too difficult. Bidding starts at $10, and the auction ends Sunday.
