Absolutely fantastic late 1950s or early 1960s wiggle dress made by Alix of Miami in an orange, green, and brown tropical floral print on a natural white background. Crossed V-neck bodice with tiny little cap sleeves, darting at the bust for shape, and a nipped cummerbund waistband with orange piping. The interior of the bodice has a built-in bralette lining for light support and shaping. Slim wiggle skirt with darting from the waist. V-shaped back, nylon zipper, and kick pleat. The original hem of the dress was removed and taken up by about 3-1/4". The new hem is nicely done, but turns the kick pleat into merely a little fold at the back of the skirt. I have left the hem as is so that you can decide what length you prefer. The fabric is a heavyweight polished cotton with a diamond texture . Maker label in bralette reads "Alix of Miami. USA and Canada. Florida's First Name in American Fashion." Vintage size as shown on tag is last photo is 12 - I hand washed the dress after taking the photos and the size tag is no longer readable.

Condition: Very good vintage condition. Other than the aforementioned altered hemline, the only flaw I can find is some slight yellowing at the underarms. It is not really noticeable, blending in quite well with the pattern. There is also a bit of very very faint yellowing to the inside of the neckline - but this is, of course, on the inside and cannot be seen when worn. I hand washed this dress, so it will come to you clean.

Approximate Size: Extra Small - Small

Measurements:
Bust: 36"
Waist: 25"
Hip: 35"
Shoulder to Shoulder: 18"
Shoulder to waist: 16"
Total Length: 37"

***All measurements are taken flat across the garment and then doubled for bust, waist, and hip size. Remember that you should be a bit smaller than the measurements for ease of movement. The best way to ensure that the garment will fit you is to measure a similar piece that fits you well and compare its measurements to those of the listed garment.***
