My nautical loving little heart almost shriveled up and died when I saw the novelty bell bottomed sailor print on this 1960s mini dress. Bright orange ribbed bodice is trimmed in novelty at the V neck, button front and gathered puff sleeves. Sailor skirt is also gathered with a pair of patch pockets.

Labeled: 34% Polyester 46% Nylon (and hopefully 20% something else that is serged into the garment and can't be read) Machine Wash Warm Hang Dry


This dress is part of a collection I recently purchased. I instead of paper or bubble wrap, a customer of mine used 42 mod mini dresses from the 1960s and early 1970s to transport their Mother's pottery collection from Hawaii back to Portland, Oregon. Then they wisely brought them to me. The woman's Mother was a seamstress and Home Economics teacher. This dress was handmade by her.


Our lovely model, Sanjna's measurements at the time of this shoot were 34-28-38 and she stands 5'6" tall.

-Bust: Up to 34"
-Waist: Up to 28"
-Hip: Up to 42"
-Shoulder to shoulder: 15"
-Sleeve length: 11"
-Length from shoulder to waist: 15.5"
-Length from waist to hem: 15"


Very good condition rating a 9 out of 10. Freshly hand washed with no flaws to note beyond general original owner use.
