Fantastic novelty print 50s dress with a border design with larder / harvest style scenes, there are large barrels with cinnamon, sacks of nutmeg, gardening utensils, corn, mace and radishes. Smaller radish, apple and bag print to the upper bodice and hip. Crisp white cotton with turquoise, green, yellow and navy print. Sun dress style with a wide scoop neck and button on shoulder straps. Waistline is nipped in and the skirt is full, sewn in slim pleats to the waistband. Back metal zipper fastener. No labels but looks commercially made.
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 XS, approx a UK6. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Chest: 31" (I can just about get this to zip up on my 32" bust mannaquin, so there is a little bit of hard to measure fullness to the bust but would probably best fit around 30-31"
Waist: tight 24"
Shoulder to waist: 14.5" with both shoulder buttons done up, or 15" with just one shoulder button done up
Very good condition. Hem has been altered, there is a faint fade line where the old hem were, see photos. A couple of small marks, see photos, these hide quite well in the print, so not very noticeable.
