Fabulous vintage tea dress from the 1950s/60s, in a soft cotton fabric with a pretty ditsy blue and lilac harebells and cornflowers print.

Labelled: A Simplicity Frock": same logo as on the 1940s/50s/60s dress making patterns.

It has short tulip sleeves, a purple piping trim to the sleeve edges, on the pockets and to the front and along the zipper through to the collar.

The sides of the waist are cinched in with 9 rows of sheering elastic and it is finished nicely with two large patch pinny pockets to the front of the wide A-line skirt: so typical of this era.

Fastens up the front to just below hip level with a long metal zipper.

Size: UK 14-16 approx. Please check measurements.

Measurements:
Bust: 39 inches. Waist: 33 inches.
Length from shoulder to hem: 45 inches.

Condition: Excellent vintage. No holes, stains, tears; elastic is robust; clean and crisp and ready to wear.

Pinned to my size 12 mannequin.

Circa: 1950s/60s.
