Final Clearance! This retro dress which looks professionally hand made (no tags) is ADORABLE! Its a very cutesy Lolita/Kawaii style and is definitely made for the gal who likes "cuteness" in her retro styles.
This gorgeous and unique dress is cut in a classic Vintage style with some Kawaii/Lolita styled updates, namely to the ruffled bodice, with 5 rows of ruffles on the front. If that weren't enough, there are pleated shoulders with 2" rows of pleats, and 7 rows on both shoulders! Adorable! The back is V'd in a faux wrap style and there is a cute pink waist tie to put into a bow or let playfully hang. The waist band is a cumberbun style and is wider to create a slimming midriff look. The dress is sleeveless and has a side zipper. This is a perfect Summer dress!
The skirt on this dress is full and pleated with wide 3 1/2" pleats all the way around. The skirt has a white cotton liner/faux crinoline underneath for a great vintage look. The top is a pretty pink rose and the bottom skirt is abstracted floral print in greens, teals, pinks, yellow, oranges and then adorable batik retro "starburst" patterns in green along the very bottom border. No attention to detail has been unleft in this playful sundress.
This dress is made from a nice crisp cotton and it has no stretch. It measures about a modern day 10 or so and when lying flat the measurements are:
22 1/2 skirt from waist
15" bodice from shoulder to waist
Condition of this dress would be NEAR MINT EXCEPT it has a broken zipper so I can only give it Very Good as it needs repair to be worn. The price reflects that. An easy fix and no problems to note, the dress really looks like it was never worn! I find nothing else wrong.
