Very striking floral 50s dress with a showstopping silhouette! White cotton with a painterly flower print in green and light blue. Snug fitting bodice with a slightly padded sweetheart shelf bust with pleated design over the bust to accentuate the fullness. Short sleeves. Waist nips in and the skirt falls from a slightly dropped v-shaped waistband. Very generous full skirt that looks amazing with a petticoat. Back metal zipper fastener. Label is Ann Louise - "Pretty as a picture". (I love the tagline!)
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 XS. For your best fit please refer to the measurements. Please note this does not fully zip up on the model, so please go by measurements rather than perceived fit.
Chest: 32" (some fullness to the bust pleats that is hard to measure)
Dropped waist: 25"
Shoulder to waist: 14.5"
(There is a 2" hem on this)
Very good condition. The sleeves have been made a bit wider by opening up a small slit to the underarm. It also looks like the side seams on the bodice have been resewn at some point, though this is not visible when worn.
