Retta-Day late 40s dress in a fantastic red and black striped light weight semi-sheer synthetic fabric. The cut on this one is just beautiful - so many great features. Fitted bodice with a big collar and fantastic puffed shoulders with loose fitted half sleeves. Nine small domed shank buttons to the chest, purely decorative. Waistline nips in and the skirt is a full circle design with a hanky / hankerchief hem. Lined in red. Back metal zipper to fasten. Quite lightweight and flowy.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a XS-S. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Shoulder to waist: 15.5"
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 14"
Sleeve from underarm to cuff: 13"
Length: 49" at the longest points and 42" at the shortest
Cuffs are quite tight and measure about 8.5-9" in circumference (I've worn them unbuttoned in the photos)
Good condition. One small pin hole by the waist and some small areas of splitting to the crease edge by the zipper, see photos.
