Here's a cotton day dress in blue, red, yellow, green and brown chambray stripes. This dress has a deep V neck, a wide pointed collar, a metal zipper front, 2 patch pockets and cuffed half sleeves. The dress bodice is fitted with waist darts in front and back, and bust darts. The back of the skirt is constructed to form chevron stripes. Additional fabric inserts are sewn in to complete the chevron.

The dress is not floor length, I just neglected to raise the form to a more appropriate height before taking the photos. The dress just barely fits on my dress form, and there is no stretch to the material. Please consult the measurements below carefully. The condition is good with a few stains (the more noticeable one on the lower left hip, the other on the back, some faint stains on dress front) and one small hole below the right pocket (see last pic). This dress has been hand laundered, line dried, pressed and is ready to wear!

Please compare the actual garment measurements below to your own clothing (not your body) to determine fit. Measurements have been taken with the garment lying flat.
Shoulders: 13.5 inches across
Chest 19 inches across
Waist 13 inches across
Hips 27 inches across
Sweep 56 inches across
Sleeve 15 inches from shoulder seam to cuff
Length 16.5 inches from the collar seam to the waist seam, 26.5 inches from the waist seam to the dress hem. Total length 42 inches.

Frequently asked questions about BlackRockVintage

The care and storage of vintage clothing can influence the condition. Please expect most vintage items to show some wear. I define wear as light fading, pin holes, pulled threads, fraying and perhaps a few light stains.
Since you can't touch the item or try it on I take a lot of time to provide measurements and detail in my listings. Since monitor settings can vary, I describe the colors. I take the time to photograph and describe any flaws I see.
If I offer a garment with any more than light wear, I will describe and/or photograph the flaws the best I can. The photos are part of the description, so please use the zoom feature to examine the item carefully.
RETURNS (US Residents Only)
I accept returns (sent back within 7 days of USPS delivery date via tracking number) on items as long as my original tags are in place, and the garment is in the same condition as it went out. The buyer will pay return shipping unless item was grossly misrepresented.

Instructions for Return:

1. Please message me that you will be returning the item.
2. Please wrap the garment neatly in original packaging, or other clean protective material.
3. The buyer must use USPS Priority Shipping for any return and send the tracking number in an Etsy convo on the day of mailing.
4. If the garment is worth more than $50, insurance must be purchased to cover the amount over $50 (USPS Priority Shipping insures up to $50).
