Great autumn/winter dress in the finest velvet corduroy. Really beautiful dark red colour. Made in a lovely fine cord, almost like velvet. Fitted bodice with short sleeves and a wide high rounded neckline. Fitted waist and a slightly full skirt sewn in wide pleats. Fastens to the back with big covered buttons. Fab low cut square backline. Lined in a black slightly stiffened petticoat. Label is Sambo Fashions. Quite a 50s silhouette but I would think 60s era.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
The dress is not labeled withsize but fits approx like an XS-S. For your best fit please refer to the measurements. Fabric is quite thick and not stretchy, so you may want to err on the side of caution with the measurements.
Chest: 35" (may best suit slightly smaller)
Waist: 26" (may best suit slightly smaller as fabric is quite thick)
Shoulder to waist: 15"
(There is a 3" hem on this)
Good condition, with some slight issues, though still looks great on.
-Some small dark marks to the side of the skirt, near the hem, see photos. There is also one area of slight fade/orangey tone to the side of the back of the bodice, see photo, but this is quite faint. Dress has been cleaned.
-Bottom button is a little bit worn and discoloured, see photo.
