SALE—was $63

I love the warm medium pink shade of this early 60s vintage dress. The fabric has a slubby shantung texture, and a muted luster. A thread burn test was inconclusive for me. The material is almost certainly at least in part silk. It is lined throughout. The front bodice (and its lining) are bias cut for a great fit. The collar extends into ties. There are 3/4-length kimono sleeves with diamond-shaped underarm gussets. The skirt is straight and slim, with just a bit of gathering falling from the waist on the sides of the front. There is an attached belt which hooks in back and has a flat bow in front. Side seam pockets; long back covered nylon zipper. The labels are Frederick's - Montclair - Spring Lake, and Robert Leonard—the store, and the maker.

Condition: Very, very good. I see one faint spot about the size of a dime on the lower side of the skirt. It hardly showed in a photo, and is pretty negligible. My seamstress put a hem in the dress, and she did a beautiful old-fashioned hand sewn hem.

Size: The hip measures like a size smaller than the waist and bust of this dress, and it does appear the side seams were altered through the skirt. There are 1.25" side inseams, and the skirt could probably be made larger again (it looks like it was originally about 2" larger at the hip). I would say it is about a US size 12 to possibly 14, but note that hip measurement.

Back of neck to waist-15.5"
Waist to hem-25.25"

Please note: I measure the dimension of the item itself, and you will need to consider what size you would want the item to be to fit well on you.
