Wonderful 1960s cotton halter sun dress with open back and full skirt in size Large, bust 36. Perfectly proportioned despite my photography skills. Halter dresses are hard to photograph on a mannequin.
Bust 36, waist 30, hip up to 42 (full pleat gathered skirt), length from underarm to waist is 9 inches, length from shoulder to hem 43 inches with a 2 inch hem allowance.
Gorgeous, one piece, unlined dress with a dart fitted bodice. The halter strap has a single button closure at the back of the neck.
It APPEARS the dress has a very long bodice; not the case. This is just the way the halter style photographs on a mannequin. The measurements work for a standard body type. Length of bodice could be adjusted very slightly by adding a button or moving the existing button slightly.
Bodice joins the skirt at the natural waistline. The skirt is pleated and full.
There is a back metal zipper closure and a fully open back.
The 100% cotton has an Egyptian print in Deep rust, brown, burnt orange and yellow on an off white field. There are great gold and silver metallic accents. Print is a Hieroglyphic motif.
Colors are vivid! Condition is above excellent with no stains holes, or significant wear. Zipper is great. Fabric is medium weight, smooth finish and crisp. Clean and ready to wear.
NOTE: center seam at bust shows 3 stitches pulled away from the seam. Seam just needs a stitch or a brooch!
Beautifully home tailored; the work is above EXCELLENT!
