Dark floral sun dress by Lucie Linden. Approx early 80s era, but design and print is very reminiscent of the 50s. Dark grey with huge vivid floral print in red, mint green and dusky midnight purple. Fitted bodice with sweetheart bustline with small gathers between the breasts and a little bow detail. Thin shoulder straps. Fitted waistband and full circle sweep skirt. Side nylon zipper to fasten. No sure what fabric content is, feels like a slightly coarser woven material, possibly a rayon or a synthetic blend. Unlined.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
The dress is labeled a size 38 but fits approx like an XS-S. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Fit on model:
Underbust: 30" stretches to 31"
Waist: 26" little bit of give, can pull to 27" taut
Top of bust to waist: 11"
Shoulder to waist: approx 17" but this shorten slightly as the bodice stretches on the width, so think this fits closer to 16 when worn.
Skirt length from waist: 28"
Length: approx 44"
(There is a 1" hem on this)
-Dress has belt loops but is missing the original belt.
-Some very very slight straining to the fabric where the straps attach to the bodice.
None of this is very noticeable when worn. Belt easily replaced with a plain black belt.
