♛The Details

Gloriously pretty, rare example of ca. 1940s hand-work, a beautiful crochet gown in dreamy teal blue hue. The textile feels like a rayon. I love the pretty, feminine details!

•meant to be worn over a slip -- so you can change its look by changing the slip's color

♛The Measurements

About a modern size S to M; it is a knit and has stretch, of course; my dress form is modern size 2, and it also easily fit my dress form who is a busty size 6
Bust (underarm to underarm, measured flat then doubled): 30" stretches to 40"
Waist: 22" stretches easily to 30"
Hips: 30" stretches easily to 42"
Length, center of back collar measured down to hem: 48" and has 3" hem allowance

♛The Condition

Very good, strong and sturdy vintage shape with no overt flaws or issues. The zipper is a later replacement from probably the 1960s, but it's a good match in color. I found a tiny (grain of sand-sized) freckle on a ribbon located on lower skirt. Had to really search to find that. Wears and displays beautifully!
