Description

Lot of 5 Vintage 50's to 60's Rockabilly Swing Wiggle Dresses XS - Large (As Is)
Condition: AS IS condition. This dress was part of a theater group and was well worn. There are several issues that I have tried to address in each individually numbered dress below. I think All of them can be corrected by a dying or reworking, or at the least could rework a dress into a skirt. 
Size: Ranges from XS to Large. Each size is mentioned in the numbered items below.
1. White Dress: Young Sophisticates label, marked size 14, but will better fit a Small 4 to 6. Metal Zipper down the back. Fabric is  linen blend or synthetic. Bust 35", Waist 28", Hips 38", Length 39". Yellow discoloration near hem area.

3. Teal silk flower swing dress, no tags, Bust 36", Waist 29", Hips 60", Length 39", Skirt Circumference 124". There is a tear at one armhole, the front skirt seam has loose stitching and there is a pea size hole on the lower center back, a few inches above hem. Also an inch tear, near hem at left side. No stains.
4. Aqua Blue Silk cocktail dress by Montaldo's, buttons down the back, has fitted bust & waist, with a full skirt that measures 84" around at the hem. Bust 36", Waist 28", Hips 50", Length 48".
