Perfect little nautical 50s number by Lavinia. Novelty print in brown, yellow, white and blue with a grid/stripe pattern of what looks like a design of tromp l'oeil ship boards with yellow bolts, in which are inset small nautical motifs - anchors, ships, compasses, ships wheels. Dress has a fitted sleeveless bodice with three large buttons to the back. Small hugging waistline and a classic 50s full skirt. It fastens with a side metal zipper. Bodice finished with blue interfacing fabric, but dress is otherwise unlined. Crisp cotton.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
The dress is labeled a size 36 but fits approx like a XS-S. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Chest: 33" to 34" tight
Shoulder to waist: 15"
(There is a 2" hem on this)
Very good condition.
-There is a very faint crease line around the hem, where I think this was rehemmed and then let back out at some point. It's super slight and not visible when worn. The current hem looks like the original hem.
-One small spot to the back shoulder, see photo.
