Entirely hand smocked and embellished with clear glass beads. All materials are new. Its a size 38 but it turned out a bit short waisted so I have to classify it as a women's petite or junior teen. The inside hem edges are stayed with elastic to help the smocking keep its shape. I am afraid that cleaning this garment is problematic, since the fabric is new, it retains the crisp freshness of new dupioni silk. If it is in any way cleaned the sizing will be at least partially removed and the fabric will become softer. Also trying to iron smocking is also tricky but not impossible. But it's a special occasion garment so you won't wear it that often and then you'll be gentle with it. The front neck to waist measurement on the dress form is approximately 34 cm but the neckline is cut 6 cm wide from the neck and the smocking makes its own peplum (that should come below your waist) so the front length comes to 36 cm with the peplum about 9 cm at center front. The center back neck to waist on the form is 38 cm and the neckline is cut about 5 cm from the neck with the same peplum width at center back of 9 cm, so the back length of the blouse comes to 41,5 cm. The sleeves are about 19 cm. The bust is 91 cm but the smocking will give to accommodate 87-95 cm. The waist is 70 cm but can also stretch. The side panels under the arms are NOT smocked so that alterations to make it smaller are easily possible.
