SALE—was $40

This lovely creation looks to me like it was expertly homemade in the 1950s, possibly for a wedding or dance. The bodice is made of pink linen, machine embroidered with white leaves and branches. There are front and back princess seams that reach points at the front and back of the sleeves, then circle below the sleeves. The neckline and sleeves are edged in pink satin. The full skirt is made of diaphanous sheer nylon over taffeta. There is a long back covered metal zipper.

Condition: Outwardly very good, but just good when taking into account staining of the taffeta skirt under layer. It looks like the dress has been washed, and the taffeta is a little crinkled, but its main flaw is quite a bit of pale orangish staining around the hem. Please see the last two squares for these and the more subtle issues. The dress presents itself quite well despite the flaws.

Size: XS, about a US size 2 by my estimate.

Hip-full, about 50"
Top of shoulder to waist-16"
Waist to hem-31"

Please note: I measure the dimension of the item itself, and you will need to consider what size you would want the item to be to fit well on you.
