This pretty fit and flare vintage dress is in a warm brown color with dark brown braid piping along the convertible collar and around the hems of the sleeve's cuffs.
The feature of this beauty is the underbust seaming which creates what many refer to as a shelf bust, with a tuxedo tucked curved front bodice and pearl look shank buttons up the center front.
Measurements translate to a contemporary size 6, or small:
15" shoulder point to shoulder point
15.5" long from center back of the neck to the waist
40.5" long from center back of the neck to the hem
This has a side metal zipper by Murlen.
6.25" sleeve length
84" sweep of hem
We did find a 1/4" hole in from the right seam 5.25", and up 10.25" from the hem, however, otherwise this is in excellent condition. We looked to see if we had an image of it, and we do not; we also tried to see it in the full length shots, and we can not pick out where it is. We'll try to get a photo of that to add for you here...
We particularly enjoy wearing these fit and flare dresses to dance in, whether it be a rockabilly weekender, or just a fun night out at your local swing club. However, this versatile dress is perfect to wear to the office, or to church on Sunday, or for Friday Night Date Night.
