50s novelty beach dress / swimsuit top? in a light waffle textured cotton. Black, red, yellow and green print with a fisherman / ship print with people laying nets and a captain with a pipe playing accordion, lanterns, look-outs on the mast etc. Thin triple shoulder straps and sweetheart bust. Fitted waist and cute skirted hip. Side metal zipper to fasten. Could be worn as a top or as a mini beach dress.
The swimsuit is not labeled with a size, but fits approx like a modern day XS, approx a UK6, but please refer to the measurements.
Fit on model: this does not zip up on model as too small, so please go by measurements.
Waist: 25" stretches to approx a tight 26"
Top of bust to waist: 10.5"
Length: 27" shoulder to hem
Very good condition. I think this has been rehemmed, so not sure if this originally was a dress, or wether it was originally a dress, or maybe a beach outfit that originally came with pants?
