Handmade cotton velvet dress in the most vibrant pea green. High slit neck with lower v-back. Short sleeve. Nice gathered waist/underbust design with a large black buckle in front. Straight cut skirt with fitted darts to the waist and hip. Back nylon zipper to fasten. Unlined. Due to being handmade, not entirely straight forward to date, pattern looks 60s era and the zipper is a vintage nylon 60s/70s zip, but it is very possibly this has been made later with vintage materials, something about the construction, thread used seem a bit more modern to me.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like an XS. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Fit on model: fits as shown but a little bit tight in bust and cuffs, would advice for smaller.
Shoulder to underbust/top of buckle: 13"
Shoulder to waist: 15.5"
Cuffs measure 10" in circumference around the bicep approx
(There is a 2" hem on this)
-One small repair to the underarm/side seam, see photo. Some small crush marks to the velvet.
-Some small slightly linear crush marks to the velvet in the skirt, see last photos, I've tried to steam/brush gently, but these persist although not as noticeable in real life as in the photos I think.
-Dress is handmade so some finishes are a bit handdone and inside seams are not overlocked so show a bit of fraying, nothing visible when worn however. Priced accordingly.
