Lovely bright blue 50s dress with a textured white polka dot print. Peter pan collared neck and row of five small buttons to the chest. Short sleeves. Pretty fit and flare silhouette which cinches in the waistline and flares out over the hip into a cute full skirt. Slot pockets on the hips, trimmed with white piping and four decorative buttons. Back metal zipper fastener. Fabric feels like a slightly heavier weight woven rayon, but as it is not labeled, I'm not certain. No labels.
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.
Waist: 26.5-27.5" (a little bit of natural give,
Shoulder to waist: 15"
(There is a 2.5" hem on this)
Very good condition.
-Missing the original belt.
-Some faint underarm discolouration, see last photos, not very noticeable when worn.
-On the inside some signs of seam repairs and a few of the buttons have been resewn at some point in a slightly darker thread, but this of course can't be seen when worn. It also looks like the hem has been resewn at some point, but I think it is the original hem, rather than an alteration. Inside seams are not overlocked so show minor fraying in places. None of this is noticeable on the outside when worn. Presents nicely.
