Lovely handmade original 50s vintage cotton day dress in a black and white stripe with blue floral designs to the skirt. Fitted bodice with a high collarless rounded neck. Slight peak to the shoulder creating the slightest cap sleeve effect. Small patch pocket with a flower centered to the chest. Waistline nips in and fastens to the side seam with a metal zipper. Full skirt sewn in inch wide pleats to the waistband. No labels but from the inside, looks to have been handmade.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat and a white belt on the model, neither of which are included in the sale.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a XS-S, approx a UK8. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Fit on model: please note this does not zip up fully in the bust, so please go by measurements rather than percieved fit.
Shoulder to waist: 14.5"
(There is a 2" hem on this)
Good condition. Tiny machine darn repair to the side of the arm opening, see photo.
Very very faint underarm discolouration, just to the very edge of the pit, not noticeable when worn and too slight for my camera to pick it up.
