Stunning grey 40s evening long length dress in a romatic floral rose bouquet print. Selvedge has the name and maker, Waverly Fabrics and the print is called Sweetheart rose. Lovely fit with a drop waisted bodice with a gathered bust seam for soft drape and a deep and wide cut v-neckline with a folded collar that peaks over the shoulder. Short puffed sleeve. Natural waistline nips the silhouette in and the dropped waistband sits on the upper hip, with a curved seam with a small v-point to the centre. Bodice and collar have small sequins sewn on, matching the colour of the floral print. It's a gorgeous detail that really lifts the print! Skirt is sewn in small gathers giving it a soft fullness. Made in a very fine soft cotton. Side metal zipper to fasten. No makers 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 an XS. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Fit on model: as shown but this was VERY tight in the bust on a 34" / 34C bra size, so would advice for smaller)
Chest: 34" (best fit smaller, would advice for 32" or less to keep from straining the bust seams)

Shoulder to natural waist: 14.5"
Shoulder to dropped waist: 18"
(There is a 2" hem on this)
