Great little autumn staple 50s dress in a lovely painterly check print in bold shades of purple, emerald, light brown and white. Fitted bodice with a wide rounded neckline and sleeveless cut. Waist nips in and the skirt is sewn in in small gathers for a lovely full fit and a classic 1950s silhouette. Side metal zipper fastener. No makers labels, just a small size tag to the neck.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
The dress is labeled a size 42 but fits approx like a Medium. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Chest: 38" (best fit smaller - I would say for a 36" chest)
Shoulder to waist: 15.5"
(There is a 1.5" hem on this)
Very good condition. Tiny bit of wear to the top of the zipper, not noticeable when worn. The cuffs have been finished with a running stitch, so I wonder if they have been altered at some point though this is not noticeable in any way other than on close examination.
