♥ Description

This is a wonderful and very flattering blue checked sundress from the 1950s. There are no tags to indicate maker or fabric content. If it is handmade, it is very nicely done. The fabric seems to be a heavier cotton or cotton blend. It has wonderful details with the white piping and the pleating at the bust. The drop waist bodice is nice and fitted before it flairs out into a full skirt…note the four pockets! There is a zipper on the back, but it does not go all the way up to the neck (I did have a hard time getting this on Edith for pictures because of this). The skirt has some sort of paper lining that gives it some fullness, but the rest of the dress is unlined.

♥ Measurements

Fits Edith (measurements are 35-25-37) perfectly.
Estimated modern XS maybe S (remember, it was difficult to get on Edith).
Bust: 32 inches
Waist: 28 inches
Hips: full
Length: 41 inches

♥ Condition

Excellent condition. No holes or stains seen. The paper lining is NOT in perfect condition, but this is not visible when worn and it does not affect the skirt portion in anyway. Clean, but this has NOT been professionally cleaned.


All measurements given are taken while the garment is flat and then doubled. Please check your own measurements carefully and measure an item of clothing that fits you well for comparison. Usually your measurements should be 1-2 inches larger than the garment in order to allow for comfort.
