Sweet floral 50s cotton dress by Horrockses Fashions. Lovely vivid print with rich pink and greens on white and large flower and leaf patterns. Bodice has short sleeves and a v-neckline in front with bias cut fabric meeting in a gathered/ruched design to the front of the waist/underbust. Waist is fitted and the skirt falls in small gathers giving it that perfect 50s fullness, looks fantastic with a petticoat underneath. Back metal zipper fastener. Perfect summer style!
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 to Medium, I would estimate about a UK10. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Chest: 36-38" (little bit of give due to the gathers and bias cut of the cotton, but I think this looks best on 36" or slightly smaller)
Shoulder to waist: 17" (though this does shorten slightly when the bodice is stretched on the bias)
(There is a 2" hem on this)
Good condition with some very discreet signs of wear and repair:
-One neat and pretty much unnoticeable repair to the front corner of the underarm gusset.
-One tiny backed darn and some faint lines of ghost stitching just by the ruching on the waist of the bodice.
-One small scattering of very faint marks to the skirt, I doubt you would spot these unless closely examining it, see photo.
Priced to reflect condition.
