Blue cotton voile Jeanne D'Arc 1950's dress with white embroidery.

This dress is 1950's perfection. Gorgeous white embroidery on the bodice, a light sky blue skirt that would look amazing with a crinoline underneath. This is the type of dress you can wear to any occasion and have people asking you all night where you got it.

It's got an attractive wide boat neck, short sleeves with a slight dolman, a shirt waist with skirt pleats and the original metal zipper up the back. You will need a full slip underneath it as the material is shear.

Measurements taken in inches with the garment laid flat.
Please double where necessary.
I suggest measuring a similar garment that fits you and comparing to what I've listed.
Armpit to armpit (bust): 20 (this is with the dolman sleeve, so it's a little wider than a dress with standard sleeves)
Waist: 14.25
Shoulder to waist: 16.5
Waist to end of skirt: 25.5
Armhole (total): 11
Tag: Jeanne d'arc - use cool iron avoid steam/ handwash
Condition: Great vintage condition. There is some piling which is common in voile fabric of this age. There is also one small snag in the embroidery. It's in very wearable condition and with hand washing and hang drying this dress has many more years left in it!
Material: a cotton voile (meaning it's a shear cotton with a blend of poly).

I'm happy to answer any questions (convo me!) or provide more photos of this dress.
