The outer layer of the dress is made out of a light pink floral lace, and the main part of the dress is lined in pink acetate. The dress has long lace sleeves that are sheer and unlined, and there is elastic and little lace bells at the ends of the sleeves. There is also a large ruffle of lace that goes around the shoulders of the dress like a cape. The dress has a high cummerbund waist and a high collar with satin ribbon and ornamental button accents on the chest. The skirt of the dress has a large ruffle around the hem.
It is slightly longer in the back than in the front, and it can be left hanging down or bustled up for a draped look. The dress closes with a zipper down the back.The tag labels this a size 9/10, but vintage sizes tend to run smaller than modern sizes. I believe this dress is closer to a modern size Small. The actual measurements are as follows.
17.5 inches across, underarm to underarm (35 inches around) Shoulders: 14.5 inches across, seam to seam Waist: 13 inches across (26 inches around, measured at the lower waist seam) Hips: 19.5 inches across 39 inches around. This is the measurement for the lining, and I took the measurement 8 inches down from the lower waist seam. Length: 55 inches down the front, 59 inches down the back. These are the actual measurements of the garment, so please leave yourself room for comfort of movement.All measurements were taken with the item laying flat. The flat measurements were doubled to give an approximate measurement around. This dress is in excellent vintage condition with no flaws to note. I also have many other items in my store, so check out my other listings! BY PURCHASING, YOU ARE AGREEING TO THE FOLLOWING STORE POLICIES. The items in my shop are used and may show minor signs of wear, but I will do my best to describe any flaws that I find. I go to the post office every week day, Monday - Friday. Ive had some customers get their packages in around a week, and for others, it has taken a month. The large majority of the items in my store are vintage, and therefore pre-owned. I do my best to only put items up for sale that are in very good to excellent vintage condition, and I will list any major flaws that I notice. However, most vintage clothing has been around for several decades or more, and it may have some minor snags in the fabric, the occasional loose thread or other minimal signs of wear. Vintage items may also have raw seams that have not been serged. By purchasing, you are accepting that these items are used and may not be 100% perfect. However, if you feel I have overlooked a major flaw, please let me know! I personally have a SMOKE FREE AND PET FREE HOME. I won't sell a piece of clothing if I notice a smoke smell on it from a previous owner. I have no way of knowing if the original owner of the clothing had pets, but I will use a lint roller to remove any fuzz or stray hair I notice. Because most of what I sell is vintage, an item may have been in storage for quite a few years, so I always recommend you wash or dry clean your item before wearing it. If for some reason you have a problem, please CONTACT ME before leaving negative or neutral feedback, and I will do my best to help you with your concerns!
