Lovely formal/party 50s dress by Horrockses. Soft dusky blue nylon chiffon with horizontal pin striped bands. Unusual design to the bodice with the fabric layered in tiers, using the solid blue sections to create a soft ruffle pattern. This continues into a short peplum trim below the nipped in waistline. V-neck with vertical stripe trim and seven small pearly buttons from the chest down to the top hip, with additional hidden popper buttons underneath the skirt pleats. Very full floaty skirt, sewn in thick gathers for maximal fullness. Beyond full circle. Very New Look. Skirt fabric is slightly sheer, so you may want to wear it over a slip or petticoat. 

Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.

The dress is labeled a size 14 but fits approx like a S-M. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.

Chest: 40" (best fit around 37")

CONDITION
Good condition. Some small flaws but presents very well, nothing that detracts badly when worn:

-Some small pulls in the chiffon. One small circular burn hole. A couple of tiny marks near the hem of the skirt.

-Horrockses label a little frayed and slightly detatching on one side of neck.

-I think the dress has been rehemmed, possibly originally floor length?

-Missing the original belt.
