Sweet wee 50s cotton day dress in a pastelly pink, brown, white and grey striped print. Bodice has a straight cut neck and diagonal pleating from the shoulders giving the bust soft fullness. Waist is fitted and comes with a matching cinch belt in brown. Lovely full skirt with a deep patch pocket off side to the hip. Inset back metal zipper. Light cotton.
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. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Chest: measures approx 38" but would best fit around 35" to keep the shoulder pleating in place (I'm a 36" chest currently and though this fits, I can feel slight straining to the arm openings when I move)
Shoulder to waist: 15.5"
(There is an approx 2" double folded hem on this)
Belt measures 26" on smallest setting and 30" on the largest
Good condition, but quite well loved.
-Some light even fade to the cotton.
-Small repair/patch to the bottom of the arm openings, pretty neat on the outside so not very noticeable, but a bit untidier on the inside, though this can't be seen when worn, see photos.
-Some small repairs to the corners of the pocket.
-Some tiny scuffs/wear signs to the edges of the shoulders, see photo.
-Has most likely been taken up slightly, as hem is folded double, but looks like the original hem is still there underneath, so not cut.
Priced to reflect condition.
