Take a bet on this darling vintage 1950s novelty dress with a card suit print! Print is a lime/chartreuse and blue color with a card suit print of spades and diamonds with an atomic stick pattern in the background. Sadly she is heartless but I'm sure her next owner will give her all the love she needs! ;p Dress is sheer so I recommend wearing a slip underneath, with a fitted bodice, velvet black piping trim details, tiered skirt and has a metal side zipper closure and cotton underskirt.

FABRIC: -
SHOULDERS: 17"

UNDERSKIRT: waist 22" across top, hips 41-50" lightly stretched, length 27"
CONDITION: great, some white material sticking out of velvet trim(see photo), I am not sure if the underskirt is original to the dress but I did soak it to remove staining, some staining remains at the top of the underskirt where it meets the waistline because I didn't want to soak the delicate fabric, has hole on underskirt hem(see photo), I considered removing the underskirt but I am leaving that to the buyer to decide
PINNED TO MODEL?: no

Measurements are taken flat and provided in an items description and doubled where appropriate unless otherwise stated. The best way to determine fit is to compare the measurements listed to your own body measurements and also to something you already own and love the fit of. Remember to allow room for movement to ensure a proper fit. If you would like additional measurements, please contact me!

I provide model/dressform sizes for reference. Please note clothing may be clipped on the model to show how they would look on the suitable size but will be denoted after "PINNED TO MODEL?"

Shopping with a mobile device? Click "Item Details" to view the measurements.
I only sell vintage items. Often vintage is one-of-a-kind and it is highly unlikely to find that special item ever again. So, don't live a life of heartbreak and regret, if you have your eye on something, snatch it up before it's too late! It's now or never, doll!

And if you happen to be looking for something in particular, please let me know, I have 100's of pieces of unlisted vintage stock :)
Adapted from a sign in an antique shop and edited to fit being an online vintage clothing seller:

I hunt it, travel to find it, find it, buy it, haul it, wash it, scrub it, repair it, fix it, patch it, steam it, model it, photograph it, edit photographs for it, describe it, research it, compare it, list it, advertise it, relist it, weigh it, display it, care for it, package it, ship it.....
"Now how can I take any less?"

That being said, I may be open to fair offers but please check the shop announcement and social media for coupon codes and the Saleland section for already discounted vintage.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL. There are no refunds or exchanges. Please view all photos, read an items description and measurements thoroughly before placing an order and please ask any and all questions prior to purchase. I want you to LOVE your Storyland Vintage purchase and I am always happy to double check measurements, send additional measurements, describe the color and send additional photos :)
Reserves/layaway's are available for serious customers on items that were not newly listed and not listed in Saleland. Please contact me from the listing page to set this up! Sorry, during store wide sales I can not accommodate reserves. The early bird catches the vintage, doll!
