    I have been trolling Etsy for similar cotton shirtwaist dresses from the 50s/60s — this is why! They are perfect, modest for summer. I have an ancient one, green, that I've patched together so many times it's really not decent to wear anymore, though I still do — The Sartorialist would not approve! It's beyond grunge; the fabric has worn off the buttons, etc. I had another, in blue, dropped it at the drycleaner's, and someone stole the buttons off it!

    Anyway, that's my story; love this look.
