Fresh summer dress with broad shoulders and nipped in waist, made of navy and light blue with white stripes.
Free (56") hip
17.25" long from center back of the neck to the waist
49" long from CB of neck to hem
160" sweep of hem
16.5" shoulder point to shoulder point
10" sleeve length
3.5" long collar points
The skirt is cut on the bias, for a lovely, flattering fit.
The front bodice pockets are also cut on the bias, while the back yoke, sleeve hems and the panel facing for the side seam button placket have all been cut on the cross grain for a great contrasting appearance.
The sleeve caps are tucked, which add volume and width; there are not shoulder pads in this.
This was custom sewn in the 1970s, when 1940s influences (the wide shoulders, bias cut skirts) were the rage.
We've shown it with a navy blue belt; that is not included.
Freshly laundered, in excellent condition, with no flaws: ready to wear.
