Crisp white cotton 50s dress with the sweetest blue rose print. Classic cinched in waistline and generous full circle skirt for a dramatic fullness. Bodice is sleeveless with a fitted underbust and a slightly looser fitting bust with a straight cut neckline in front and slightly lower cut v-back. Back metal zipper fastener. Dress is handmade. Very cute spring/summer look and great romantic print!
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 S-M, sizing is a little inbetween sizes when compared to modern garments. The waist is relatively small (closest to a UK10 in modern sizes) while the bust allows for a larger fit (UK12-14), so would best suit someone curvy. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Shoulder to underbust: 12.5"
Shoulder to waist: 16"
(There is a 3" approx hem on this)
Very good condition.
-Dress is handmade so some of the finishes aren't factory perfect, but this isn't very visible on the outside when worn. The only thing I can note is the zipper seam isn't perfectly aligned at the back of the waist, see last photo.and the zipper colour is a pale pink rather than white, but this isn't overly noticeable when worn. The hem is also handsewn with quite broad stitches and the hem edge is not overlocked. A bias binding would have been better, but it is perfectly fine to wear as is.
-One tiny speck on the bodice, also shown in photos.
Dress is priced accordingly and sold as is.
