Great little corduroy day dress in a painterly blue, turquoise and cream semi-abstract floral print. Shelfy bustline with fitted underbust and a nice low cut bust with overlapping design to the bust. Half sleeves. Waistline cinches the silhouette in and the skirt is generous and full. Back metal zipper to fasten. No labels.
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 an XSmall, fit is petite, so would best suit a shorter / short-waisted lady. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Fit on model: as shown but this was very tight and too short in the bust
Chest: 32-33" (there is some fullness due to the overlap, so can get this very taut to 34", but I would advice for smaller)
Waist: 25" to 26" pulled very tight
Shoulder to underbust: 9.5"
Shoulder to waist: 14.5"
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 14-14.5" approx
Good condition, very wearable.
-Hem has been redone, neatly with a bias band. There are some areas where there is a slight yellow line where the old hem was, but the print is very forgiving, so I don't think it detracts or is particularly noticeable when worn.
-A couple of small holes near the hem, see photo, not noticeable when worn, hides well in the print.
-Dress is handmade and internally it is a bit messy, the seams are not overlocked and show a bit of fraying in places, and there are some historical machine seam repairs, and the occasional hand stitches. This is just internally, it doesn't detract when worn and isn't visible.Priced to reflect condition and sold as is.
