1950s or 1960s era wide skirt and shelf bust party dress. Made of soft, airy black chiffon with a pink band in the middle. The back has a lovely dip and chiffon bow tie at the top of the metal zipper and hook and eye. Fully lined with a built in taffeta skirt and slip/bra, so larger busted ladies can go braless with this one without feeling uncomfortable.
The dress is in impressive condition, considering the chiffon fabric. The only flaw is the straps having a bit of wear to them, but most of it is on the underside, and if a bit of new lining was attached to that underside, they could look quite nice and new.
Armpit to armpit: 19”
Waist: 14” (exact; no stretch)
Hip: free
Length: Strap to waist: 16” Waist to hem: 25”

Frequently asked questions about ReitaPieVintage

Sizing is based solely on the exact measurements given in each listing, in inches or US shoe size. I usually will specify small, medium, large or plus size, but it is best to refer to the measurements before you purchase. Convo me if additional measurements or clarifications are needed.
I offer discounts with the purchase of 3 or more items— convo me for specific details, and sending a screenshot of your cart is always helpful!
I always try to include every pertinent flaw or issue in each listing. If I say an item is in "great shape," that means no overt flaws have been found, or if they have, I've described them. The only condition term better that 'great' is excellent, or like-new. That means there are absolutely no marks or snags or holes.
Unfortunately I cannot wash every item that comes through my shop. However I do steam every item (unless it is leather or fur). Steaming helps release odors and also kills off anything worrisome. Some items have been hand washed, but like I state in my policies, part of what keeps my prices so low is not paying to dry-clean every item. If there are stains, washable marks, or odors, these are always mentioned in the listing. I advise washing your items before wear, though, since some are more than 80 years old. Convo me for any advice on washing your item!
Refer to the measurements, always always always! I encourage this because there is such a range of measurements that can exist within a size number. Also, certain brands vanity size, and older items are going to be much smaller, despite saying size 12, for example. Theres SO much variation, that it is always best to just measure yourself.
If it is a reasonable discount, it doesn't hurt to ask!
Please see shop policies for a detailed answer, but most of the time YES, if it is shipped back to me in a reasonable amount of time.
