This vintage blue dress is made from "Tetoron Taffeta". It feels like polyester, and it is very thin.
It is a lovely pale blue through to mid blue colour, with swirly circly type print all over it.
Ruching across the middle with a loose end that drapes down. Capped sleeves. Ends just below the knee.

Brand: Elegant Lady

Size: Aus size 18 - 20, it is very loose on me and I usually wear a size 16 dress.
The label reads "OS half size" which I guess stands for "over size"?

Size (measured flat, double and please compare with something that fits you well)

Bust: 24 inches/ 61cm
Waist: 19 inches/ 48.5cm
Hips: 25 inches/63.5cm
Length from neckline at front to hemline 42.5 inches/108cm
Weighs 155g

Absolutely NO stretch or give in this fabric.

Condition: it is in good vintage condition. I repaired the centre back seam which was coming undone towards the bottom. Across the slit at the back near the hemline was a little square of fabric, designed to prevent showing too much calf I suppose. This was torn - I imagined the previous owner having a few too many shandies at a wedding one day and kicking up her heels. I simply removed this ripped square, but I still have it and can sew it back on in the interests of authenticity. Also, the drapey section at the front has been pinned onto the dress with a tiny safety pin which has caused a tiny rip. This is not noticeable since the bow sits in front of it.

Vintage: I am guessing this dress is from the 1960s, although it would not have looked out of place on one of the ladies at my mother's wedding in 1973.

There are no care instructions, but I would recommend a cold hand wash, line dry and no iron - it looks like it would melt.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
