* This Delightfully Shabby baby-blue Dress was rescued and purchased just before it went to a recycle bin... Oh, the thought! It looks like it's from a long, long ago prom, debutante ball or garden party and is truly shabby with a few holes in the netting with stains or fading and wear under the arms and around the neck and a couple small stains, that looks like red ink, on the front of the satiny blue under-slip plus what looks like juice spills. It has Not been cleaned and has No bad odor. Please, excuse the photos... I'm still learning the settings on this camera.
* The two piece dress may be from sometime around the 1920s to the 1940s and will work for earlier or slightly later eras. There is no makers label and the dress is not really fragile --it's wearable with care. Perfect for a stage play! The fiber content is unknown. The dress and slip have a little give but measurements are taken flat.
* MEASUREMENTS: (please compare to your body measurements with room for under-garments)
-- Bust ... 30 inches around -at underarm seam.
-- Waist ... 26 inches around -at waist seam, approximately 8 inches below underarm seam.
-- Length ... 55 inches from top of back neck to bottom of the dress.
-- Bottom Edge ... approximately 110 inches around.
* Some DETAILS:
-- waist ties in back
-- waist buttons on side
-- sleeves are gathered with a side-seam
-- 3 cascading ribbon roses are tacked to front (the petals need straitening)
-- netting dress has no hem
* SHIPPING: I don't think it can get anymore wrinkled so it will be rolled and mailed in a box.
