Fantastic 50s floral dress by St Michael. Lovely crisp cotton in a sunny yellow colour with huge blue flowers. Sleeveless bodice with a wide square neckline and slightly higher back. Fitted waist with a matching belt with buckle. Very generous full skirt with lovely curved pockets to the hips. Inset back metal zipper fastening. Skirt has an attached canvas petticoat sewn in but dress is otherwise unlined. Really gorgeous print and design!
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
The dress is labeled a vintage size 16 but fits approx like a modern day UK12. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Shoulder to waist: 16"
(There is a 1.8" hem on this)
Very good condition.
-Some VERY faint ghost stitching by the side seam of the bodice and to the front darts where this has been taken in at some point and let back out again.
-I think the belt buckle is a replacement, but an original vintage one.
