This 1950s classic fit and flare style cotton shirtdress features a beautiful blue and purple floral pattern against a reddish-hued background. Peter Pan collar, 9 covered buttons up the front, cuffed short sleeves, nipped waistline and a pleated/gathered full skirt complete this classic silhouette.
