Stunning 50s cotton dress in a lovely bright green and pink floral print on white. Dramatic milkmaid style bodice with a wide waistband which curves up between the bust and decorated with a strap with four small shank buttons in front. The bustline is very marked and falls in gathers from the neckline and gathers to the underbust to give it fullness. Wide rounded neck with green piping to finish. Nipped in waist and sweeping full skirt. Vintage nylon fastener. A most perfect little summer dress!
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: 34" flat, but does have quite a lot of fullness in the gathers that is hard to measure, I can fit this as a 36" bust/32D cup
Shoulder to underbust: approx 10.8" at the lower part
Shoulder to waist: 15.2"
Good condition with some slight signs of wear but still presents well, please see photos.
-Small darn and a tiny thread pull to the bust.
-Slight signs of old stitches by the zipper at the waistband.
-One small mark by the top of the zip and one faint mark to the skirt, which hides quite well in the print.
-Zipper has been replaced I think, and has been handsewn in with tiny stitches.
Please see photos.
All in all still presents well. Priced to reflect condition.
