Vintage Lemonade Dress

Yellow has always been my favourite colour, so my heart skipped a beat when I found this confection:
I took this pale lemon beauty home with me from a church rummage sale for a mere $3! $3!!! Take note of the double peter pan collar, the delicate pin tucks, the sleeve construction, the fine gathered waist, and the embroidered stripes on the skirt. Such charming attention to detail. Judging by the style it is from the 1950s.
I certainly hope the tiny lovely lady who wore it back in the day went to picnics and drank lemonade in it!
