Stunning floral 50s party dress by Countrywide. Lovely crisp white cotton with lively floral print in cold pink, green and blue with a brush of brown and grey. One of those florals that seems to work all year round, both summery and wintery. Bodice is intricately designed with a M-shaped piping band to the neck finished with a little bow in front and diagonal darts to the waist and pleats/tucks to bust to give fullness and shape. Back of the waist has attached straps which button in place to cinch the silhouette in. Slightly dropped waistband with a very full skirt, sewn in small gathers. 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 a Small. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Chest: 33" (little bit of fullness in the bust due to the tucks)
Shoulder to natural waist: 15"
Shoulder to dropped waist: 16"
(There is a 2" hem on this)
Very good condition. Hem has been taken up and then let back down at some point, leaving some faint signs, very slight crease line and some tiny ghost stitches where the old hem was.
