Fabulous Lilly Pulitzer 1960s drop waist dress was brought to my shop in Portland, Oregon by the original owner. She said she bought it in the 1960s and then promptly began breeding her many children and never fit into it again. Her loss is your NOS gain! White floral appliqué runs around the collar and down the front of the dress. Trompe l'oeil buttons are also comprised of rolled up trim. Bottom of wrap around style skirt is open. Front of bodice is both princess seamed and darted. Closes at center back with metal zipper topped with hook and eye.

Labeled: The Lilly Lilly Pulitzer Inc. 65% Polyester 35% Cotton Exclusive of ornamentation HAND WASH ONLY DO NOT DRY CLEAN Style 798 Size 16

Retains it's original IBM punch tag from local Portland department store Meier and Frank. Original price: $50

*Do you know about vanity sizing? There was once a store called I.Magnin. Here in Portland, Oregon a woman of the mid 20th Century might wear a size 12 when she purchased things at Meier and Frank. At I. Magnin the same woman would wear a size 8. Many women were dedicated I. Magnin shoppers simply because of size. It's just a number ladies. Get out your tape measure and use the measurements provided below. An inch is always an inch an no matter your body type or weight. Find a dress that fits you here, or in my sister shop where dresses are categorized by waist measurement. http://www.etsy.com/shop/unionmadebride


Measurements...

I do not pin clothing on models, but prefer instead to show you my garments on people they actually fit. My measurements at the time of this shoot were 40-32-42 and I am quite broad in the shoulder or a broad, broad as I fondly refer to myself. This garment was a little large on me.

~Bust: 44" Maximum
~Drop waist measures: 38"
~Hips: 44" flexible due to wrap around style skirt
~Shoulder to drop waist: 18.5"
~Drop waist to hem: 19"
~Sweep of skirt: 56"


Condition...

Excellent New Old Stock condition. The only flaw is some discoloration on the ornamentation near the neckline. This is most likely from collecting dust while hanging in the original owner's closet for many years. This will come out upon the first hand wash (I recommend using liquid Biz) I just couldn't bear to take the tag off and do it myself.
