Sweet little red wool dress, early 50s by Nantucket Naturals. Soft stretchy wool jersey type material, very soft. Long dolman sleeve with light shoulder pad. Bodice has an overlapping faux-wrap design with a high v-neck. Small gathers to the side seam of the waistline. Full skater style pleated skirt which is sewn in small gathers to the waistband. Back metal zipper fastener. Unlined. Comes with a matching cinch belt.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like an XS. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Chest: 34" with a bit of stretch (I think this would best suit slightly smaller, it was a good fit on my 32-33" bust mannaquin)
Waist: 25" stretches to 26"
Shoulder to waist: 16.5"
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 16"
Sleeve from underarm to cuff: 17"
(There is a short hem on this)
Good condition but has been shortened so this is now a mini dress, when it would most definitely have been more of a midi length originally.
-Belt buckle shows some small frays and signs of wear.
-The pleats have washed out a little bit over time and are no longer as sharp as I think they would have originally been.
-A faint mark near the hem of the skirt at the back, see last photo, I've gotten this to fade a lot, but it's not quite come out, but it is very hard to spot when worn. I've circled it in the last photo.
