WOUNDED BIRD. Please read carefully and see all photos.
Charming true vintage 1920's dress. The dress is a paper thin sheer silk with a floral print in turquoise/aqua. Pullover style with attached lace collar. Has a matching belt with green celluloid buckle. The dress has belt loops above the dropped waist. Issues are: has a few very small spots and a maybe about a fist size stain near the hem. All look like they would come out with a soak but I have not tried. The dress also has a bit of that old storage funk- not mold, just old dust smell. I didn't notice till steaming it. There is color bleed in the pits. Holding up to a window showed some very tiny pinholes. Use the zoom on the window pic to best see these as they are so tiny. There is a small hole on the back just above the drop waist seam. It measures maybe 1/4". Despite these small flaws, the dress is still over all pretty great. It's a wearable size and the fabric does feel strong.

Measurements taken flat and doubled where applicable:
chest- 44"
waist (where belt loops are)- 43"
hip (taken at drop waist seam- 45"
length- 45"
shoulder- 18"
Belt is 41"/41.5" long from clasp to clasp
Dress form is a large. Belt was pinned in 1st photo)

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.

Additional policies

I have a basic "how to" for determining your measurements on my About page:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/aorta/about/
Please use the measurements and info provided in the item details. Letter and number sizing is an approximation. There is no industry standard on sizing, so it can be subjective. (This is why you might wear a 2 from one big box store and a 6 from another.) I urge you to use the measurements provided to determine your best fit.
My prices are fair and firm. Sorry, I don't give discounts.
When buying multiple items, shipping will auto-combine in your cart. On the rare occasion there will still be an overage. I refund overages exceeding $3.
Only for people I know.
