50s CALIFORNIA COTTONS PINK FLORAL DRESS WITH CORSET WAISTBAND - S
This is such a fantastic little dress! I absolutely love this design, it's bright, fun and bold and so darn flattering! California Cottons bright summery dress in a white, pink and green floral print. This has the most amazing bodice with a wide waistband which curves up between the bust and is finished with a strap with four decorative buttons in front. The bustline is very marked and falls in gathers from the neckline and gathers to the underbust to give it fullness. Lovely deep scoop neck in front and back. Nipped in waist and sweeping full skirt which is lined with a cotton underskirt. Back metal zipper fastener. This is such a beauty!
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 Small. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Chest: 35" flat, but does have some fullness in the gathers that is hard to measure.
Shoulder to underbust: approx 10.5" at the lower part
Shoulder to waist: 15"
Good condition with some signs of wear and repair.
-There is a section cut out of the inside hem, this of course can't be seen when worn, but it means you can't let what would have otherwise been a generous hem down.
-Some very very slight colour bleeding to some seams, I think it is the thread rather than the fabric that has bled, so it's very discreet, barely visible and would not really be noticeable when worn, see photo.
-Small signs of repairs and previous alterations. There are repairs to the top of the underarm seam, not very obvious when worn. see photo. There is also some faint ghost stitching by the zipper, so I think it is the case that the zipper has been resewn. On the inside some small signs of seam repairs can be found, but this is not visible on the outside when worn.
-The neckline piping trim is showing some fraying on some small areas on the shoulders, see photos.
All in all still presents well. Priced to reflect condition.
