Betty Hartford Hibiscus Linen Dress S/M


Tailored yet still airy vintage 1940s linen weave dress in a robust tonal blue hibiscus print sporting pops of magenta and grass green. Excellent construction all around with slightly shaped shoulderpads, cuffed short sleeves, pointed collar, chest pocket, starry blue molded buttons, waist darts and a matching belt. The dress has some life to it, but is ready for her next chapter! From label Betty Hartford, circa 1940s.
