The Measurements.

About a modern M.
Bust (underarm to underarm measured flat, then doubled) 38".
Waist: 28" and has belt to draw smaller.
Hips: 40".
Shoulder to waist area: 16 1/4".
Skirt, waist area to hem: 27" and has 2" hem allowance.

Note: these are the measurements of the garment itself.
Please allow adequate "wiggle room" for proper fit -- at least an inch is recommended.

The Condition.

This 50+ year old dress is in Excellent vintage condition with beautiful presentation. Looks crisp and sharp, and the impression is very clean and pristine. The only thing I can find to note is that the hem needs to be put in; my seamstress can do this for the new owner after purchase to her specifications, or she can do it herself when she receives it.
