The Ivy Retreat

Preppy white and blue dress

This dress doesn't really need an explanation because it's so darn cute, but I'll give it to you anyway! It's a 1950's handmade dress that was created from a textured pattern of royal blue lines intersecting each other on white cotton.  It has large pleats dispersed throughout the skirt as well as smaller ones on the front of the bust.  There is a zipper down the back of the dress and pointed Peter Pan collars on the front and back sides.  It is appropriate for so many occasions and can be dressed up or down.  It would be great to wear to work as well as out visiting the girls for brunch.  I've decided that if there was a tag it would say "this dress definitely needs to be danced around and twirled in before wearing it out in public"... this is simply for its ranking on the cuteness scale.
