Lovely little handmade 50s cotton dress in a grey and black abstract print with a vivid print of large turquoise/blue flowers on top. Bodice has a seamed underbust with small gathers for fullness and a deep v-neck which overlaps a tht seam. Wide waistband with two decorative ball buttons to the front. Waistline nips in and comes with a matching slim belt. Full skirt. Side metal zipper fastener. 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 a Small. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Shoulder to waist: 16"
(There is a very short hem on this)
Very good condition.
Hem is a little bit longer to the sides and front, than to the centre seam at the back by about 1" but is the original hem, so it was most likely made this way.
Belt is fraying slightly to the buckle and has some faint discolouraiton. It's also missing the little loop that is meant to hold the end in place, but you could add a little rubber band or popper button to solve this, or simply tuck it in.
Discreet repair/resewn seam to the top of the zipper.
