A warm treat for cool weather! Classic rust and black with bold, gold-rimmed, brown buttons, this vintage dress is so quintessentially 1950's!

The dress is partially underlined (to help hold shape) and also partially lined (pinked edges), has some unfinished edges, and bound buttonholes. There are three-quarter length sleeves, a back metal zipper (inserted with the lap on the right side - they are usually on the left). It has a cool peplum detail with a tie in the front. There a shoulder pads and bra strap holders, too! (First pic is actual color)

Maker: handmade
Content tag: none, a heavyweight wool or a wool blend,
Care tag: none, I would dry clean
Size tag: none, but will probably fit a modern size 8
Condition: good, a 1" spot on the knot of the tie, and a small spot 3" up from the hem at the center front.

The dress is 43.5 inches (1.12 m) long from the shoulder seam to the hem.

Bust: 21 inches (53.3 cm)
Waist: 14.5 inches (36.7 cm)
Hips: 21 inches (53.3 cm)

This sweet garment now resides in a smoke-free, cat-loving home.
