CEIL CHAPMAN 50s WIGGLE DRESS IN DARK RED FLORAL PRINT - S-M
Showstopping floral wiggle dress by Ceil Chapman. This one is truely amazing, the fit is just subline. Low cut draped neckline which sits super wide over the shoulders and deep in the bust, almost off shoulder. It has discreet slightly elasticated straps to the shoulder which keeps it in place. The waist is fitted and nipped in and the front of the bodice has two bones to the front, finish under the bust. There is a small gather to the side of the bodice by the waistband and the neckline has an outer draped layer, all very typical of Ceil, and creates a lovely movement to the fabric. Fitted skirt with the fabric overlapping in front and a short curved side split to the side seam. Back metal zipper fastener. Lined in very lightweight black fabric.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a Small to Medium, hard to convert to modern sizing as it has quite a curvy fit with a smaller waist and a fuller bust. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Shoulder to waist: 16.5"
Very good condition.
-Looking at the inside I think this might have been rehemmed as it looks like there was some slight fraying to the original hem, length is still very good so this is neither noticeable or effect the fit/design when worn.
-The elastic to the shoulder straps have loosened/slackened a little bit.
