Description

Vintage powder blue with a metallic silver weave in the fabric. Circa late 60s/early 70s. The dress has a v-neck, dagger collar, empire waist lined with silver braiding under the bust, and sheer billowy sleeves that button at the wrists. Nylon zipper in the back. The skirt has a wide a-line to make it a bit flowy. Excellent condition, but the very bottom of the zipper is not sewn to the dress. Barely noticeable, but a quick fix. Clean and ready to wear. Would make a great costume for the gal who wants to be a popular blue dress wearing princess for Halloween.

Shoulder- 15.5"
Bust- 40"
Empire waist- 29"/30"
Hip- 46"
Length- 52"
shoulder- 17"
sleeve length from shoulder seam- 22"

*MEASURING TIP*
My clothing measurements are taken with garments laying flat. Chest and hip measurements are doubled. The best way to utilize this is to take a similar garment you own and measure it laying flat, then compare your numbers with mine-they do not need to be exactly the same, just similar. If you know your body measurements, remember that some garments (especially non-stretch fabrics) require a few inches of wiggle room in areas such as the hip. See my "About" page for a tip on determining your body measurements.
