Versatile little 50s day dress by Horrockses Fashions in a sweet utility / almost military inspired style. Soft khaki coloured crisp quality cotton with buttoning all through the front. Bodice has a square neckline, and short sleeves with turn up cuffs. Wide waistband which really cinches you in, neatly detailed with a little v-point to the placket. Full skirt with big patch pockets to the hips.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
The dress is labeled a vintage size 14 but fits approx like a Small. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Shoulder to waist: 15.5" to the upper part of the waistband and approx 17" to the lower part of the waistband
(There is a 1" hem on this)
Very good condition.
-Dress has belt loops but sadly missing the original belt.
-Some faint faint marks to the back of the skirt, see last photo, but I don't think these are really visible when worn, see last photo. There is also some faint signs of iron sheen to the skirt, but again, not really visible when worn.
-I think it is possible that this has been rehemmed.
