Description

Girl's 1950's Party Dress

Based on an original 50's design, we bring you our version of the 1950's Girl's Party Dress. Fairly simple in design, the front bodice has kimono sleeves and buttons down the back. Attached is a full 50's style skirt with lots of twirl and accent at the hem. To complete the look there's a long sash of about 78". It can be worn tied to the side or for younger girls as a big bow in the back. Please be creative with the sash and know that the dress looks plenty pretty without it as well.

This dress is available in sizes 2 through 14 and would be considered tea length. I know the finished lengths of the larger sizes and will add the others as I make dresses in those sizes.

The dress is available in 4 fabric combinations as shown in the pictures above.
1. Blue floral with green accents. Shown in picture 1.
2. Striped floral with yellow accents. Shown in picture 2 and 3.
3. Teal floral with green accents. Shown in picture 4.
4. Yellow floral with green accents. Shown in picture 5.

Sizing and Approximate finished lengths:
Size 2--To fit chest of 21" and waist of 20".
Size 3--To fit chest of 22" and waist of 20.5".
Size 4--To fit chest of 23" and waist of 21".
Size 6--To fit chest of 25" and waist of 22".
Size 8--To fit chest of 27" and waist of 23.5". Finished length about 31"
Size 10--To fit chest of 28.5" and waist of 24". Finished length about 34"
Size 12--To fit chest of 30" and waist of 25.5". Finished length about 37"
Size 14--To fit chest of 32" and waist of 26.5". Finished length about 38.5"

Please allow a turnaround of one full month for your order. If you require a rush order with a turnaround time of only one or two weeks, you may access listings to those in the last shop section called "Rush Orders and Extras". Please be sure to pay for your rush order along with your purchase and send me a conversation anytime if you have questions.

    This is a lovely nightgown, and I love the fabric I chose. It is quite voluminous (although perhaps that is my fault for not being more careful in taking weight loss into account), and the only thing that truly bothers me about it is that the cuffs and hem are sewn with white thread (dark red fabric), and are machine-stitched with raw edges, which show badly. This is very disappointing; I sewed when I was younger and I would have hemmed--or even French-hemmed--my garments, carefully turning under the hems, rather than making them look like they were made in a factory. This would probably keep me from ordering again, but it is, otherwise, a nice-enough garment.

    My flannel half slip arrived during a cold snap and it couldn't have been more welcome. It is a soft cream color with matching lace which is perfect for wearing with the Victorian and Edwardian skirts I wear. So soft, so warm, well made, and fits perfectly. I am delighted.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
You may pay for your garment directly through Etsy checkout or PayPal. We begin work on your custom order immediately by processing it, pulling and cutting fabric and getting your garment in the production line for sewing. Ready to ship orders are processed and packed. In order to keep our prices as low as possible, once an order has been placed, we do not grant cancellations. Thanks for your understanding.

Returns & exchanges

I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

Returns and exchange details

In order to keep our prices as reasonable as possible for everyone, we do not accept returns on our ready to ship garments. I'd encourage you to ask questions before purchasing to be sure that the item will meet your needs.

Custom orders or altered items are not returnable as they have been made specifically for you. If you have a concern about your order after receiving it, please do contact me. It is our desire to please all of our customers. Most disappointments can be avoided by checking size/measurements before ordering and asking as many questions as needed.

Orders are processed and administrative work is begun as soon as your order is placed. For this reason, we do not accept cancellations. Again, please be sure to ask questions before placing your order to make sure an item will meet your needs.

Shipping policies

All sewn items within the US are mailed via USPS Priority Mail which generally takes two to three business days once it has been mailed. Sewing patterns ship First Class and take about 5 days. Your tracking number will be provided when the package is mailed. As a general rule, we ship each week's finished orders on Saturday morning and packages arrive between Monday and Wednesday. If you order a ready to ship item early in the week and need your package sent right away, just let me know. Time and weather permitting we would be glad to accommodate you.

If you would like overnight delivery or added insurance (over $50), please email me before placing your order so I may adjust the pricing.

International (including Canada) orders will be shipped via USPS 1st Class International. If you would like Priority Mail shipping, please contact me and I can send a paypal invoice for the additional shipping costs. All customs paperwork will include the contents and price of your order. Duties and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.

FAQs

Ready to ship orders are shipped out in 3-5 business days. We generally ship on Saturdays but if you need expedited shipping, please let me know before you order and I can let you know if it is possible. If you order custom items along with ready to ship items, they will be sent together when the custom items are finished. Our turnaround time for custom orders is one month.
A custom order is any garment where you choose the size and fabric and I then make it up for you. Custom orders have a one month turnaround time. If you require a custom item sooner, add your item to the cart and take note of the price. Then go to the last section of our shop called "Rush orders" and use the appropriate listing there in order to receive your order by the date you need it.
Some of our listings include a size chart. If you need any help with sizing simply send me a conversation and I'll be happy to help you out. For a child give me age, chest and waist measurement. For an adult give bust and waist measurement. Pattern sizing can be different from store sizing, especially in adult sizes. It's always better to check if you are unsure.
I sure do! If you don't like what you see, please send me a conversation and let me know what kind of fabric you are looking for. I have everything from linen blends to chambray to a much more extensive collection of cottons than I can put in an etsy picture.
Please be sure that you can commit to your purchase before you place your order. It is our desire to provide clothing at a very reasonable cost. We do not build in cost for relisting or time spent in background administration. Therefore, once your order is placed, it cannot be cancelled. Thank you for your understanding.
In order to keep our prices as reasonable as possible for everyone, we do not accept returns on our ready to ship garments or custom made garments. Please ask questions before purchasing to be sure that the item will meet your needs.

I understand that there is a risk in ordering custom made as you cannot try it on before purchasing. I purchase plenty of handmade clothing on Etsy and while not everything is perfect, like you, I enjoy the adventure of having something made just for me.
Please send a conversation with any questions you may have before you order. I will almost always get back to you on the same day during the work week. Questions sent on weekends may not be addressed till Monday. I do ask that you only send multiple conversations if you are serious about purchasing. It goes a very long way in helping me keep prices as low as possible.
