Fascinating 1950s dress begins with a layer of black taffeta. The skirt is comprised of an overlay of gathered netting that has been machine embroidered in a pink and white floral and leaf motif. Machine embroidery is repeated on the taffeta bodice, only without the netting. Tiny cap sleeves, sweetheart neckline and three figure flattering horizontal tucks at the center bust. Comes with original belt. Closes at side with staunch metal zipper.

I do not pin clothing on models, but prefer instead to show you my garments on people they actually fit. Britta's measurements at the time of this photo shoot were 37.5-29-44.5 and she stands 5'11" tall. She is also very long in the waist. This dress was rather roomy on her in the bust.

-Bust: Up to 42"
-Waist: Up to 30"
-Hip: Full
-Length from shoulder to waist: 17"
-Length from waist to hem: 31.5"
-Sweep of outer layer: 98"
-Sweep of lining hem: 76"
-Belt adjusts from: 30.5"-32.5" and is 1.5" wide.


Very Good condition rating a 7 out of 10. The white thread is very slightly discolored throughout. In some places it is white, some cream and some tan. There are also loose threads from the embroidery throughout the dress. Because of the busy print these flaws are not noticeable unless under close inspection. Loose threads are primarily around the zipper. You could clip them and no one would ever know there was a problem. Were you looking at this dress in my brick and mortar shop, you would not notice these flaws until I pointed them out to you.
