Striking dark blue 50s cotton dress by Westchester. Really lovely ribbon print in white and grey which loops into little rosette style corsages. Bodice is sleeveless with a high angular neckline with a neat back collar. Waist nips in and the skirt is full and has a thicker white cotton petticoat attached underneath. The skirt has a patch panel with the print sewn in vertically to the side of the hip, I mistook this for a pocket at first, but I think it is just a decorative design to play around with the pattern. Side metal zipper fastener. Really lovely deep colours still and sits beautifully on!
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
The dress is labeled a vintage size 42 but fits approx like a Small. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Chest: 34" (but would probably best fit a little bit smaller as the cotton has no stretch and the side zipper makes this a little bit snug to get into)
Shoulder to waist: 15"
(No hem to let down)
Very good condition.
-Dress has belt loops but no belt.
-Pretty much invisible seam repair to the top of the zipper.
