Description

Vintage 1970s dress with a ruffled, surplice neckline. The dress is black with white micro polka dots, short cap sleeves (almost sleeveless), an elastic waist and flowy skirt. Slightly sheer. It is in great, gently used condition. Some of the polka dots under the arms are faded and the elastic waistband is perhaps not as stretchy as originally intended. There is a little safety pin along the neckline helping to keep it modest. No other flaws, washed and ready to wear.

Brand: J.Y.'s New York
Fabric: polyester

Measurements for best fit:
chest- 42" to about 50" (surplice necklines have lots of leeway)
waist- 36" to 44"
hip- up to 70"
length from shoulder to waist- 17"
length from waist to hem- 23"
Fabric has a little stretch.
Shown on a US size 4 dress form.

I combine shipping on multiple items.

*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.

I bought this dress as a birthday gift on someone's wish list. She's very into vintage and she swing dances, so this is the perfect dress for her. We were both really impressed with the quality and cut of the dress. It's simple but flattering, and can be worn a multitude of ways. The description of the item was accurate, and I had no issues with the transaction. Recommend!
