50s Horrockses Fashions dress in a lovely light brown cotton with a print of yellow lemons, oversized pink cherries and small white and lilac flowers with green leaves. Fitted bodice with short sleeves and scooped neckline. Waist nips in and comes with a matching tie sash. Full circle skirt which looks just amazing with a petticoat underneath. Side metal zipper fastener. Such a classic 50s design - from the fruity print to the silhouette - this is just adorable.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
The dress is labeled vintage size 12, but fits more like a modern day UK8 or a general size XS. Please refer to the measurements for your best fit.
16" approx from shoulder seam to waist
Length: 45" (short hem, can not be let down.
Good condition. Not pristine, has some light signs of wear and is priced accordingly but still presents beautifully:
-One tiny darn by the underarm gusset corner, see photo.
-One small hole in the skirt, see photo.
-Has been rehemmed and hem is finished with a running stitch in a slightly darker brown than the dress colour. See photo.
-Some signs of small seam repairs on the inside and small section of the zipper seam has been resewn,also in the slightly darker brown thread.
-Some light fade to the cotton, slightly more so to the upper back bodice, but this is slight enough to not detract when worn.
