50s Horrockses Fashions dress with a classic New Look era silhouette. Fine printed cotton in a pale natural yellow/beige with a small diamond and spot grid print in black. Dress fastens with seven large buttons to the chest and has 3/4 sleeves and a collared v-neck. Waist is fitted and the skirt has a dramatic tiered and ruffled design with a massive sweep, almost full circle. It has contrasting panels - tiered and non-tiered and the effect is just striking, specially when worn with a petticoat.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
The dress is labeled vintage size 18, but fits approx a general size Medium, the fit is very tall bodied, so this would best suit a taller or a long waisted lady. The waist is about a UK12, but the bust would fit a UK14, so it would suit a curvy lady well. Please refer to the measurements for your best fit.

One tiny hole in the skirt, which you have to search for to find.
