    Because it's pretty. I've been looking for 2 years for a great 50s full skirted dress for my own collection. Yesterday, I found what I'd been looking for. It actually 2 pieces, but looks like a dress. Enjoy!

    The cumberbund is actually ribbon.

    Flowers and rhinestones attached to skirt at pockets.

  3. That's very pretty, Lizzie! So the cumberbund is actually the end of the top, and then it overlaps the skirt?
     
  4. Ahhh, the 3-D flowers are swwwwell!

    that is gorgeous! Isn't there one of us that is selling something very similar to this with the roses and green cumberbund and bow?? I think they listed it in the mall.

    It puts me in mind of those 50s Horrockses dresses, Lizzie! It is lovely, and quite a match with those shoes too!

    Yes, the ribbon comberbend is actually attached to the top, and it overlaps the waist of the skirt.

    Margaret, you are right, this is very much like a Horrockses. There's nothing like a pretty 50s print.

  10. Love the 3-dimensional flowers. And how great are the pockets? I love a pretty dress with pockets. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Pauline's question stuck with me and I spent some time at VC-Mall, last night. Gail has a dress with a similar print and waist treatment at GailDavid's This 'N That Shop there.

    I adore this dress!!! I thought the flower print was just very realistic. Didn't realize until today that it is 3-D...how clever!!!!!!!!!!!
