DETAILS: This charming vintage day dress is probably early 1960s, very Mad Men and perfect for a curvy office diva like Joan! The bodice is fitted with darts and has a scoop neckline and short sleeves. The straight skirt is also darted for curve hugging fit and has oh-so-practical handwarmer type pockets and a center back kick pleat for ease of walking. The front waistline is subtly embellished with two spirals of tone-on-tone satin cording that serve a functional purpose, with a matching satin corded "sash" belt snaking around the waist and emerging from the center of the spirals to tie in front.

SIZE: No size label
Bust - 42.5" (108cm)
Shoulders - 16.5" (42cm)
Waist - 33" (83.75cm)
Length - 38.5" (98cm)

FABRIC/COLORS: The fabric is a bonded knit, cottony jersey on the "right" side, with synthetic jersey bonded to the back so the fabric holds its shape. Color is pale yellow/green like celery but with some leanings toward tan. The belts and embellishment are done in dull satin, same color.

TAGS: No tags at all. I think this was most likely custom sewn, at a good skill level.

CLOSURES: The dress closes with a long metal zipper down the back.

CONDITION: Some discoloration inside the underarm area, not seen on the outside. There are a couple of loose threads where the satin spirals are attached to the waist - the new owner may want to anchor those a bit more securely with a bit of hand stitching. No other issues noted, no stains, holes or tears.
