Chic bright late 50s / early 60s cotton shirtwaister in a colourful stripe print in shades of purple, brown, blue, lilac and turquoise. Blousey bodice with 3/4 sleeve and three large blue buttons to the chest. Collared v-neck. Waist is fitted and fastens with a hook and eye concealed to the front. Skirt is sewn in neat pleats giving it a very generous fullness. Looks fab with a petticoat! Comes with a vinyl cinch belt, which though I don't think it is original to the dress, goes with it very well, so I'm keeping them together. Very nicely handmade. Great colours, very bold!
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a S-M. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Chest: 40" (would best fit smaller as this is meant to fit a little blousey, I would estimate a 36-37" chest)
Shoulder to waist: 15"
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 15"
Sleeve from underarm to cuff: 12"
(There is a generous 2.7" hem on this)
Very good condition.
