Summery and very pretty early 1950's vintage day dress
, in lovely lightweight chiffon fabric.
Soft pastel tones of pale lemon yellow, grey and salmon pink, with a fresh floral print of gerbera and petunias.
Cap sleeves and v-neckline, with flattering ruched shoulders and chevron pleats to the centre bust.
Fitted seamed waist and wonderful full circle skirt, tightly gathered under the waist seam and falling in soft folds to the hem.
Fastens at the side with a early nylon zip with metal pull.
Lightweight and slightly sheer fabric, so you may need a slip underneath this little cutie!
- best fit approx UK size 10
- 40" long
- 34" bust
- 28" waist
- free size hips
In lovely vintage condition over all - has been taken in a little each side of the bodice above the waist seam, and there is one small 1cm tear next to the zip, just above the waist seam - does not notice but could be repaired fairly easily. Probably home or dressmaker-made but very nicely done!
