this is a great little polka dot dress. the best part certainly has to be the bustle! this may have been made in the 1980s in the style of the 1950s. it would look so cute with a light layer of crinoline underneath it.

there are no tags on this beauty. it may have been homemade. if so, it is well-made. it was very difficult to zipper it up all the way, but the seams were so strong, it finally made it all the way up without tearing. the material is a cotton muslin type. it is very lightweight. the material doesn't seem as white as it was in its original state. there is a tiny (hardly noticeable) discoloration under the armpit. i believe it needs to be dry-cleaned, and i took $10 off the original price to allow you to take it to yours. :) i'm sure it will clear up all the fabric issues.

the top is lined. the bottom is not. you can see this in the 4th photo. there is some boning in the bust. i believe they are plastic. the last photo shows a snag in the material on the back of the dress. the bottom red loop on the bustle hangs straight. i tucked it under for the photos. you can see that it is loose in the last photo.

these measurements have been take flat. they are taken as accurately as possible, but please compare them with your measurements. this is a small dress. it would take well to hemming if you need it.
across the back, from the top of the armpit to the other armpit (bust): 15"
waist: 13"
hips: 21" or free
top of bust to waist: 9 1/2"
waist to bottom hem: 30 1/2"

please let me know if you have questions.
