Offered here is this fun vintage home sewn dress. I don't know much about styles but this, to me, is a dancing dress. It has a wide full skirt that swings out in a satisfying way when you twirl around. I'm going to do my best at a description of the dress, without really knowing all the correct terms. I apologize for the fact that this dress needs ironing, my iron is not working! Please feel free to convo me with any questions at all.

This dress has a pleated waist with 2 small snaps inside to cinch it in at the waist, above the snaps, going up the front of the dress are 3 cloth covered buttons. It has darts at the bust, short sleeves and a wide collar with silver rickrack edging. The wide skirt has 2 zigzag lines of silver rickrack around it and the back of the dress is simply beautiful! The back has 3 pleats leading down to the waist with 3 wide lines of silver rickrack, all leading inward in a slimming line. It does have little thread loops for a belt, which I don't have but it would look great with a silver or black and silver wide belt.

This dress has no tags which is why I'm calling it handmade and am unsure of the actual size. I've gotten approximate measurements and can tell you that my model wears about a size 4 to size 5 with a 36 inch bust. Approximate measurements, taken with the dress laying flat:
15 inches across the shoulders from shoulder seam to shoulder seam, 18 1/2 inches across the bust, 13 1/2 inches across the waist, and about 50 inches across the hemline. 43 inches from the top of the shoulder to the hem of the dress.

This fun dress is in good vintage condition with no rips, tears or stains that I can find.

I have over 1000 vintage items in my store ranging from jewelry to clothes, purses to collectibles, books to ephemera. Please click the link to the main page of my shop to see all the categories and items:

Please keep in mind that vintage items have been worn and loved and all are at least 20 years old, most even older. Due to age, there may be certain areas of wear or other imperfections that are inherent to vintage items. I will always mention significant damage or wear but please do not expect things to look like “new” items.
