Bright and colourful crisp cotton late 50s / early 60s dress by Brilkie Model. Off-whie and grey background with huge deep pink and orange carnation style flowers. Drop waisted bodice with short sleeves and a wide rounded neck with small v-slit in front and lower cut scoop back. Natural waistline nips in and the fantastic full skirt falls in wide box pleats from the waistband down. Strong weighty cotton, possibly blended with something, holds the shape very nicely. Side metal zipper to fasten.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.SIZE
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a Small. For your best fit please refer to the measurements. I would err slightly on the side of caution with the measurements as the side zip makes this a bit snug to get into.
Fit on model: as shown
Dropped waist: 33"
Shoulder to natural waist: 14.5-15"
Shoulder to dropped waist: 18.5"
(There is a 1.7" hem on this)
Good condition. Slight signs of fray wear and a small pretty neat linear machine repair to the seam above the side zipper, see photo. Small scuff/anomaly in the cotton weave just below the neck. Priced to reflect condition.
