Summary

1950s cotton dress in a grey and white novelty print of haberdashery, tassels, beads and ropes, like curtain tie backs! It has shirtwaist bodice with large white buttons, gathered at the waist with a slightly full skirt. Short sleeves with turn-back winged cuffs. and in a nice larger size!

Pure cotton. Long metal side zip. Commerically made, with a faded blank label.

Bust 42"
Waist 31" (could be let out to 35", see below)
Bodice length 15.5"
Skirt length 25.5"
Length 41"

(you need to be smaller than these measurements. See our policies for how we measure and fitting advice)

Fitting note: four waist darts have been added, probably by it's original owner, which could be unpicked to add up to four inches to the waist. Be aware the fabric inside the darts is likely to be brighter than the rest, so this might show a little.

Approximate Modern Size Medium to Large.

Condition VERY GOOD: Flaws and alterations (see final photos)
- Two small holes in the fabric, one by a button and one near the shoulder seam
- Three small marks in the skirt.
- Waist darts have been added, one of which is slightly out of line with the waist seam
- The skirt has been shortened from it's original length
- Fabric slightly soft from many washings, with a slight, even, age-fade.

Bought for a friend - one of her dogs looks just like the one depicted on the card. She loves it and is going to frame it.
Posted very quickly. Great communication and friendly seller.
Many thanks.
