DETAILS: This is such a cute dress, but sadly needs repair to be wearable - that's why I'm offering it at a very friendly price. The bodice is fitted with darts and tucks - the short sleeves are dolman style and an oversized bermuda collar adds a crisp accent. The six-gore skirt flares gently for a bit of swing. The dress is shown in some photos with a white belt for inspiration - it is not included with purchase. The dress has no tags at all - this was most likely custom sewn.

SIZE:
Bust 44" 111.75
Waist 32.5" 82.5
Hips 50" 127
Bodice length 15.5" 39.25
Skirt length 25" 63.5
Sweep 65" 165

FABRIC/COLORS: The print is charming, graphic flowers and oval - eggs? done in cream and a soft shade of green that is somewhere between sage and spring. The fabric is a lightweight crepe, probably acrylic, based on a fiber burn test.

CLOSURES: The bodice opens to the waist with four large self fabric buttons and a snap under the collar. The dress also has a sideseam metal zipper.

CONDITION: There is a 3.5" horizontal tear in the fabric under the left arm about 1.5" above the bust dart - see closeup. I actually didn't notice it until I was putting the dress on Josephine for photos. If I was repairing the dress for my own use, I would add a lightweight iron-on patch underneath to strengthen and then sew a narrow tuck to hide the tear by creating the illusion of double darting. I also found two pinholes in the front of the skirt. No other issues noted.
