Paprika Pleat 1940s Collared Dress S-S/M


Just darling! Sweet as anything collared dress in the most perfect deep coral red that reminds us of fields of poppies, ripe papayas, and juicy heirloom tomatoes. With a slightly blousy smocked pleat bodice, layered petal collar, pristine medallion buttons (so cool), and, yes, pockets (!). With this dress, the delight is in the details. No label, well made circa 1940s/50s.
