Double Gingham 1970s Maxi Dress

FROM MARY FRANCES'S CLOSET

If you like gingham, you'll double like this shirtwaist from the early-mid 1970s. It's in a one-inch black and white poly cotton blend gingham with edgings, placket and collar of quarter-inch check, cut on the diagonal, and trimmed with white ric rac braid. There's a nine-inch deep double ruffle and the whole thing buttons through with near-spherical white buttons. The waist is high, almost empire, and it doesn't come with a belt, but has 1.5" loops for yours. No size marked but it's about an 8. 

Measurements: Bust 39", waist 35", hip 40", length 55", shoulder 16"
