Description

Stunning period details complete this amazing late 40s/50s day dress! Crisp red and black gingham cotton check- dress is a vibrant dark red, much redder than the pictures appear. Lovely details include shirtwaist style buttons, roll up/down sleeves, decorative button holes at collar ends, and a detachable button band at back. Full pleated skirt with belt loops but no belt- a black patent leather belt would be perfect! Original tag reads "Youth Fair Juniors".

Condition is excellent- no issues to note. Does not appear to have been worn much, if at all.

Measurements (marked a vintage size 13):

Bust: 38"

Waist: 28"

Back at shoulders: 16"

Hip: free

Length (shoulder to hem): 40"

Skirt length: 25"

Returns & exchanges

All items are vintage and have been previously worn and loved, unless noted as "deadstock". I will make every attempt to provide an accurate description of the condition of the item, including flaws if clearly evident. Most of my items will show normal wear and tear for garments that are 30-70 years old. I will not accept returns based on condition.

Most items with a size marked are approximate. I have made every attempt to measure accurately. Please read the description carefully and abide by the measurements, not the size listed. Convo me if you have any questions about an item before you purchase it. I will not accept returns based on fit, unless I have made an error in measuring. In that case, I will refund your money after you return the item in original condition at your expense, within 30 days of the original shipping date.

Shipping policies

I refund any shipping overage more than $1 over actual cost of mail and packing materials! Shipping rates are based on East-West coast shipping from zip code 18955.

For domestic (US) orders, I use Priority Mail shipping, or first class if requested. Orders are usually shipped within 48 hours, and should reach you in 2-3 days. I only use brand new shipping materials.

If an item is valued at over $200, I will pick up the insurance for US orders at my expense, to ensure you get the item you purchased.

I ship international orders via USPS 1st class mail to keep costs reasonable. There is no insurance and delivery confirmation available for this option. I am not responsible for customs delays or lost shipments. If buyer wishes to purchase insurance/delivery confirmation there will be a substantial extra charge to ship via UPS or FedEx. International orders may take as long as six weeks to reach their destination.
