This adorable dress from the 60s has a built in net crinoline with a slimmer sweep of hem which creates a charmingly puffy fullness to the skirt! And, the skirt is covered in in white and light chartreuse lace in circular designs that adds even more fullness!

The bodice is fitted with darts up from the waistline and in from the side seams.

There is a delightfully large bow perched on top of the (wearer's) left shoulder while the neckline is wide across the front, dipping to a V in the back.

Measurements translate to a contemporary size small:

It is 16" across back + 19.5” across front = 36” bust

24” waist

Hips free (up to 56”)

15.5” long from shoulder to waist

40” long from shoulder to hem

56” sweep of hem

Condition: not quite perfect as we found some subtle corsage pin scars on the right shoulder. We have not had this dry cleaned, as our local service has ruined a few of our garments now. Pricing lower, accordingly.

These fancy dresses were often worn to wedding receptions, award ceremonies, graduation parties, formal events, cocktail parties.
