Adorable cotton dress in olive green with a tiny floral print, heart shaped buttons and black rickrack trim. This is an original 1950s dress and appears to be an Octoberfest dress but there are no labels to guarantee its origin. Its styling with fitted bodice, nipped waist and full dirndl skirt are typical. The set in sleeves are gathered a little, 3/4 length, and have elbow darts for a super fit. The jewel neckline and black heart shaped buttons opens front of dress and a metal zipper fastens side seam for easy access.
Dress is shown with crinoline, ribbon and silk rose at waist for styling.

Please super size the pics so you can see them properly.

Please take a look at some of my other vintage items while you are here. If the photographs aren't enough, feel free to ask for more. I'm always happy to answer questions.

Measurements are taken of bust, waist and hips with garment laying flat and doubled. Please find a garment that fits you well and measure to compare.These are not your body measurements so leave room for comfort. The general guidelines for a dress are:
1 1/2" to 4" bust ease
1" waist ease
2" hip ease

Note: some of the clothes that I sell are bigger than the mannequin that I use. Therefore to give an accurate representation of how the garment will look on a larger size body I may pin the clothes so that they fit the mannequin. I do not change the shape or cut of the garment. Please see the measurements listed to ensure a proper fit.
