This is a ~vintage Valentine~ of a dress, made in the 1950s of crisp taffeta, and with its own attached crinoline for fullness under its circle skirt. The dress was commercially made, but it only has a size tag, not a maker's label. There is a wide fitted panel at the waist and a shelf bust with a wrap effect. The top of the dress features diagonal pin tucks and a V-neckline in front and back. The skirt flares smoothly. The fabric is acetate taffeta, and the crinoline is made of stiffened linen or cotton, with a red tulle flounce near the hem.

Condition: The dress looks very good, but has a handful of issues, which I show in the last frame. 1. The crinoline (which won't show when worn) has a few holes and stains; 2. There are several tiny holes in the skirt, and one spot where the fabric has a small flaw (the 2nd image shows one tiny hole and the flaw); 3. There is one small faint stain on the skirt. I see other stains on the skirt but these are so faint as to be negligible; 4. There is wear to the fabric over the piping at the neckline, right about at the shoulder; 5. There is a mended spot on the side seam just below the waist.

In addition, there are tiny string belt loops and no belt and there is a channel under the bust which may have once had a ribbon running through it. Now it's possible for you to find your own!

Size: Labeled vintage size 16, I'd say it's medium in size, about a modern US size 10.

Bust-38" (with a little extra room because of the cut)
Top of shoulder to waist-15"
Waist to hem-30.5"
Circumference at hem-160"

Please note: I measure the dimension of the item itself, and you will need to consider what size you would want the item to be to fit well on you.
