Here is a really lovely 1960s Large/X-Large teal dress with white dot printed design. Such a fun outfit!

Manufacturer Label: Lady Carol of New York
Care Label: 100% polyester. Machine wash, tumble dry. Vintage size 14. [Please see my measurements!]

DETAILS: This dress is AMAZING. I really wanted to keep it, but it is just too large for me. Dress has an elastic waistline, a shirtwaist style top that closes with pearly white buttons. Trim on the dress at neck and sleeves is white. Little pleating on the shoulders gives this a really feminine feel. I'm not sure what to call this neckline, kind of a Mandarin inspired feel. Skirt is really flowy and has lots of movement. It looks as though there may have been thread belt loops at one time, but someone has cut them off. [There is a remnant of one in the front of the dress at the waistline]. You may want to put an extra stitch in at the sides of the waist where it looks like it's come loose a bit. You can totally wear this without doing that, though. I assure you that the actual color is a bright rich TEAL or greenish-blue, and may look different on your monitor than it does on mine. Material is polyester, but is heavy enough to give some movement to the dress but thin enough to feel very comfortable.


SIZING
Chest: [armpit to armpit]: Measures 40" [20" flat]
Waist: Measures 34-42" with elastic stretch [17-21" flat]
Hips: measures 57" [27" flat]
Total length: [shoulder to bottom hemline]: 44"
There's some stretch to this material. You can probably give yourself an extra inch at least on any of those measurements.

I would consider this a modern Large or Extra Large, best fitting around sizes 12 or14 but please go by my measurements when making your decision. Photographed and pinned for shape on size 8 mannequin.

CONDITION: Excellent Vintage Condition! Aside from tiny issues mentioned about, there are no rips, stains, tears etc. anywhere on this dress that I can find. You can put it on and just go!

ERA: 1960s
