We love this pretty pink and purple plaid day dress that still has it's original hang tag on it.
Part of the label reads:
"Wrinkl-Shed with Dri-Don Dan River Wash and Wear
All cotton exclusive of ornamentation
Advertised in Life"
Label: "An Original Semiteen by Macy"
The term "semi-teen" suggests that this is a teen dress (only), however, the measurements would easily fit a small (size 6) woman, as well:
Hip: free/full 66"
Center back of the neck to the waist: 14"
CBN to the hem: 38"
sleeve length: 7.5"
Neck point to shoulder point: 4.5"
Please keep in mind, these are the measurements of the GARMENT, so, for best fit, we recommend you measure a dress with similar design lines (that is not knit, this will not stretch) that fits you comfortably, and measure it. Compare your measurements to those listed here to determine fit.
On the hang tag, this refers to Dan River Mills, which is what the company name became in 1946, and which was changed to Dan River Inc in 1970, dating this to within those years.
Colors: orchid purple, pink, navy blue, red, orange/rusty/brown,
This also has jacquard woven parts of the plaid: with the look of Danish huck weave embroidery.
Curved back yoke (cut on opposite grain for contrast)
Belt loops, no belt.
It's a great summer dress, and also kinda perfect for back to school
