Sweet and demure 1950's dress! Done in a vintage mauve shade of raw silk with embroidery done in gradients of purple.

Bateau neckline and cap sleeves, bodice has a slight blousy fit, especially when belt is fastened. Wiggle dress fit. Bodice is unlined, skirt has a soft tulle lining. Back metal zip.

Size on tag: none
Fits like: xs
Color: pink / purple
Material: raw silk
Condition: Excellent Vintage: one small interfacing mend mostly on the inside of the right arm hole( see 6th photo) there is some very light underarm discoloring, the discoloring under the right arm is mainly on the interior.

✂-----Measurements
Bust (underarm seam) : 37"
Waist: 24"
Hips: 35"

The belt is a tight fit with the waist of the dress, most likely the dress is meant to fit slightly loose and the belt would cinch giving that blousy look. Could easily be worn without belt.

Vintage clothing has been worn before and will naturally show signs of wear and age. There might be the occasional slight, or trivial imperfection. We do our very best to make note of any flaws in the item description, but may overlook small flaws. A refund will only be given if an item is grossly misrepresented. We do not offer refunds for small imperfections.

Although we take great care once they reach us, vintage items have had a previous life, so we cannot guarantee an item’s longevity which includes, but is not limited to, the construction (including integrity of thread, seams etc.), fabrics used or materials, pigments, dyes, trims and adornments on the item.
