Description

Pastel pink cotton wrap around dress by Swirl dates to the 1950s or early 1960s. A variety of these Swirl dresses can be seen on Ethel Mertz on several episodes of I Love Lucy. Endlessly versatile and perfect for summer. Adjustable in size and particularly convenient for small weight fluctuations thanks to the wrap around tie at the waist. Princess seam bodice features an embroidered hot pink flower with olive green stem and leaves. Skirt features patch pockets with gathering at the waist above the pockets. Closes at back with a swirl button on top and piping filled ties at the waist.

Labeled: Swirl Reg.

Measurements
I do not pin clothing on models, but prefer instead to show you my garments on people they actually fit. Our lovely model Lauren's measurements at the time of this shoot were 31-25-35 and she stands 5'4" tall. This dress will fit a slightly larger (but still short waisted, narrow shouldered) woman best.
-Bust: 36"
-Waist: 26"-30"
-Hip: Free
-Cap sleeve length: 2.5"
-Length from shoulder to waist: 15"
-Shoulder seam to seam: 15"
-Length from waist to hem: 25" + 4.5" hem
-Wrap measures: 18.5" by 70"

Condition
Very Good condition rating an 8 out of 10. Freshly cleaned and pressed. The embroidery has a few loose threads. The piping inside is disconnected from the dress on one side, though the tie is still in place and structurally sound.

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Payment is expected within three days of purchase. We are happy to reserve items for purchase at a specified date. All layaway proposals are considered. We accept all methods of payment including PayPal, personal checks and money orders.

Returns & exchanges

In over a decade of selling items over the internet, I have never offered returns unless I made some error in the listing. So far it's happened twice. Flaws are noted and photographed when needed or available upon request. As a seamstress I excel at measuring garments, recommend you measure something of similar style and am always happy to walk you through how something might fit.

As I specialize in items from 1968 and before, everything is sold as found in used condition.

Should I make an error, returns may be accepted with notification of the problem and the customer agrees to pay shipping both ways. A 15% restocking fee will apply.

Shipping policies

I take the utmost care in packing and shipping all my vintage treasures. All items are shipped via Priority Mail within 1-2 business days. Items can be shipped more quickly if buyer covers shipping costs.

I happily ship to International customers using USPS Priority Mail International. I do not falsify customs forms and your country may charge you a value added tax for which you are responsible.

Additional policies

Please note that our vintage clothing is shown on models who fit it properly. Any pinning or modification to fit will be noted in listing.
