r&k originals BLUE SHIRTWAIST DRESS shirt waist 1950's 1960's M (E9)
1950's era (maybe the very first part of the 60's) R&K Originals shirtwaist dress. This really feels like a silk/cotton blend, it's too 'silky sumptuous' to be all-cotton. It's a very fine jacquard, so there's a very subtle floral/leaf pattern woven into the fabric. A couple of these pictures make it look 'aqua', but it's not aqua, it's light blue. Bodice is button-front, and has two snaps below the waist. This presents very well overall, but it is priced 'as-is'... the underarms are yellowed, see pictures 8 and 9. If you plan on taking this in at the bust at all, some of that will go away. Picture 10 shows a few small holes on the back of the skirt, gets a little lost in the fullness of the fabric, have not repaired yet. This still photographs well, or would make a great costume. The belt seen in the pictures is not included, there is no belt, picture 7 shows the waist without the belt.Fits like a modern M...
