Whoa! You can't buy your own item.

Rare find — this item is hard to come by.

  • Vintage from the 1950s
  • Materials: Chiffon

- Lovely vintage 1950s, early 1960s handmade dress.

- Some lovely colours going on here, the top and skirt have been made from the same fabric but in slightly different colour ways.

- A kind of chiffon (ruched at the top) over a beautiful bright pink nylon lining.

- Fastens at the side with a zip (plastic teeth, metal tab) plus hooks over top to conceal the zip.

- The top is boned for a good shape.

- A couple of issues (reflected in the price): maybe the bow (at the front to the left side) could maybe do with a couple of stitches to position it, and there is sadly a little hole in the skirt area at the back which doesn't show too much, but really needs a little attention to stop it getting any bigger.

- No labels.

My own measurements (fastened & laid flat) are:
Shoulder to shoulder 15"/16"
Armpit to armpit 18"
Waist 16"/16.5" across
Hips 19" across
Width across bottom 31"
Length from top of shoulder 43"

- Very unusual, yet wearable, could be dressed up or down.

A bit of a late review, but I love this so much! I have been wearing it as a dress with t shirts underneath, I was worried about it being seethrough but it isn't at all. I wear this when I'm having a bad day because I always feel better and more confident, its such a pretty shape xx
