Ethereal 70s maxi gown in a soft cream toned chiffon. Empire bustline with a small chiffon band to tie in front underneath. High neck with ruffled collar. And the showstealer - the dramatic huge full bell sleeves with ruffled trims - almost like angel wings. Long skirt which flows out in a generous a-line from the underbust down. Hem is finished with a two tiered ruffle. Back zipper to fasten. Lined. Label is Petersons Maid, made in England. Polyester chiffon, but quite high quality, nice and crisp. Slightly heavier pale yellow acetate lining.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.SIZE
The dress is labeled a size 40 but fits approx like a Medium, fabric is non-stretch so I would leave a little bit of room for movement in the bust area. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Fit on model: clipped to fit.
Chest: 38" (best fit a slight bit smaller, I would estimate for 36-37")
Underbust: tight 34" (you may want to leave a little bit of breathing room as this measurement has no give)
Waist: 36" (skirt flares out from underbust down, so this isn't meant to be fitted)
Shoulder to underbust: 13.2"
Sleeve: 25.5" from underarm to cuff
(There is a short hem on this)
Very good condition.
