This dreamy 1950s/60s organza party dress will make you feel like you're walking on a cloud. It is the most beautiful, shimmery shade of minty aqua. It has a top layer of sheer organza (like chiffon, but more "crisp") that gives the dress a softly luminous quality. Grecian toga-style pleats spread diagonally across the skirt and bodice of the dress, and gather at the waist, where there is a pretty bow. The skirt is lined with 2 layers of tulle for fullness.

The dress is sleeveless with a scoop back, and there is a tag inside that reads “13/style/1236.”
I have had the dress professionally cleaned and pressed.

{{Measurements}}

This dress would best fit a modern size extra small to small. Here are the measurements (bust, waist and hip are measured FLAT, so you would double these to get the full measurement):

Bust: 17 inches, measured underarm to underarm
Waist: 12.75” at waist seam
Hip: 18.5” with a little extra room because of pleats
Bodice length: Approximately 15.25" measured from top of shoulder to waist seam
Skirt length: 24.75”
Total length: Approximately 40”


{{Condition}}

This dress is very attractive and wearable, but it does have some imperfections. The organza overlayer is delicate in places (in particular, there is wear/slight tearing to the organza at the top of the shoulder straps and at one place on the bottom hem). There is also some light spotting at the bottom hem, in the same place where the organza is worn -- the organza was probably damaged in an earlier attempt to clean the spots.

It also looks as if there may be some subtle unevenness to the color of the underlayer beneath the organza.


{{Shipping}}

I live in Canada, and will be shipping via Canada Post. I apologize for their high rates! I will refund any overcharge on shipping over $1 -- I'm not out to make money on shipping fees.

Surface mail to the U.S. is $9; air mail is $10. Both of these services include coverage against loss (but no tracking). The delivery estimate for surface mail is 6 to 12 business days, while air mail is 4 to 10 business days. Let me know if you would like information about faster or tracked options, or combined shipping on multiple items.

Regular parcel post within Canada will be between $7 and $16, depending on your location. This price includes delivery confirmation, and I will chip in the cost of insurance against loss. Please contact me with your postal code for a more exact quote, or if you would like to look into the possibility of sending it by letter mail (untracked / uninsured) for less money.

Air mail to the U.K. is $18; shipping to most countries in Europe should be similar, but contact me for a quote. Canada Post's delivery estimate for international air mail is 6 to 10 business days.This service is covered against loss for values up to $100 CAD, but it does not include tracking.

If you are interested in something else from my shop, I may well be able to combine shipping for little or no extra charge. Stock up on vintage goodies and save on shipping!

I am happy to ship internationally! Let me know if you'd like a quote for your country.
