Dating from the 1950s (possibly late 40s), this pretty shirtwaist dress features a light blue, white and grey feather print on silky, slightly sheer rayon. The dress is not lined. There are black plastic and rhinestone buttons to the waist, and there is a side covered metal zipper. The 3/4-length sleeves have pointed turn-back cuffs with buttons as decorations. The skirt is full, flaring smoothly in back, and with wide pleats in front. There is a narrow matching belt. There is no maker's label lin the dress, but I see a cut-off tag, and can say it was commercially made.

Condition: Very good. There are several alterations: Darts over the shoulders bring the shoulder width in, and a tuck was taken around the waist seam at the front only. I'm not sure why, because the hem doesn't sit crooked from this alteration. The hem was sewn by hand (all the alterations are hand sewn) and isn't original. Finally, the belt's backing is crumpled, but the belt is still quite sturdy. In the final photo I show the waist alteration, which is visible without the belt to cover it, and the belt's backing. The dress is clean and otherwise fine.

Size: XL to plus size 1X by my estimate, but please take note of the narrower shoulder width.

Bust-45"
Waist-38"
Hip-full
Back of neck to waist-16.5"
Waist to hem-28"
Shoulder to shoulder-14.5"

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.
