This is a wonderful early 50s era jumper dress, part of a lot of old store stock that I acquired some 10 years ago. This is the second of two of these that I had - the other one sold a number of years ago. The label has been cut out of this dress and only the size label remains. There is another tag affixed to it that reads “40s jumper”, but whoever put that there, I believe misdated it. I don’t think that this was ever used as none of the items from that lot had been used. It is made in a sleeveless style with a 4 button decorative at the center bodice and a high waist, almost like an empire bodice. The skirt of the dress is constructed to flare out to the hemline. The dress closes with a metal zipper at the center back and is unlined. I did pose the dress with a crinoline, nothing pronounced, but a crinoline in this case is not absolutely necessary.
Color: Navy blue with a fine vertical striping
Material: I’m unsure, but I think that it is a cotton/rayon blend. The fabric has some weight and falls beautifully, like rayon, but appears to have cotton content.
Sizing: Size 15 is indicated, but this is a vintage size, so please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking into consideration the style of the garment:
Shoulders: 15 1/2” across the shoulders
Bust: 36”/38” around, taken under the arm openings
Waist: 30”-31” around, taken under the high waistline
Hips: 36”/38” around, should fall loosely
Overall length: 47"
It is in very good, clean condition with no wear, tear, holes, stains or odors. The stitching around the neckline has come undone at the center, but this can be restitched if its bothers you. Also, the buttons have taken on a bit of a “rubbed” patina, really minor, but mentioned in the interest of full disclosure. This dress has been very well cared for and stored over the years.
