Description: This is a fabulous 50s era day dress that was part of a large lot of new old store stock that I acquired some 10 years ago - there are no tags, but this definitely was not used. I've had this one in storage ever since, but now it's time for someone to enjoy this dress with its wonderful geometric pattern featuring blue squares against black and white striping of varying widths. The dress has a scooped neckline with an elongated Peter Pan collar that is covered in blue cotton with a texture featuring a squared pattern. The dress has an open front and does up with ten black and white "bullseye" plastic buttons. It has a tapered waistline that cinches further with a matching belt. There is a single pocket built into the right side. The dress is unlined. I've posed the dress with a crinoline, but none is provided - in order to create the same full effect, you would need to use a crinoline, although the dress looks good without one.
Color: Blue, white and black
Sizing: Size 14 is indicated, so this should fit a large size, but being a vintage sizing, please rely on the following measurements for fit, keeping the style of the garment in mind (please measure your body or a similar garment that you might own for comparison):
Shoulders: 24 1/2" across the top, including the capped sleeves
Bust: 36" around, taken under the arms
Waist: 28" around
Hips: 44" around, but meant either to flare out or to fall loosely
Overall length: 44", measured flat from the top to the hemline
Being old store stock, it is in like-new condition with no wear, tear, stains or odors. This dress was well stored over the years.
This is a great example of 50s fashion.....perfect dress to re-create the era....great geometric print, very in right now.....
