Sweet 50s shirtwaister with full skirt by St Michael. Lovely greeny teal colour with a floral -esque silhouette print in white. Bodice is sleeveless and fastens with four large buttons to the front. High square neckline. Waist is fitted and has a concealed hook and eye fastener to the front and an open slit underneath which hides behind the pleats when worn. Full skirt which falls in small pleats from the waistband.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
The dress is labeled a size 28" but it fits smaller than that, it is also labeled to fit a "shorter woman" so is slightly on the petite side, I would say it fits a size Small, approx a UK8. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Shoulder to waist: 15"
(There is a 1.5" hem on this)
Good condition with some discreet signs of wear:
-Two watermarks, one by the second button, and one to the back of the skirt by the waist. See photos.
-A couple of small pulls in the fabric of the skirt and some tiny spot marks, see photos.
-One tiny repair to seam at the bottom of the open panel under the waist at the front of the skirt, not visible when worn as it hides under the pleats.
