This dolman cut dress has a slightly lowered waistline, short sleeves and decorative flip tie at the neckline. It comes with a matching dolman-cut loose clutch jacket, short capelet and belt; all are custom made.

Measurements:

Dress:

up to 42" bust

32" waist

40" + hip

15.5" from neck point to sleeve hem

14" around sleeve opening at the hem

17" long from the neck point to the waist (very long torso..., or slightly dropped waistline)

45.5" long from center back of the neck to the hem

has short center back of the neck zipper (metal, talon) AND a left underarm zipper (metal, Talon)

The back bodice and skirt both have double darts

The front bodice has double darts up from the waist, as well as a single side seam dart

The front of the skirt has angled side seam pockets with deep tucks to the center on each side for tummy shaping.

Self belt: 1" wide, holes at 32", 33" and 34"

The neckline has a smile shaped keyhole opening, with a criss cross "tie" through it: this is only pinned: it is not sewn on.

There are small shoulder pads.

The back of the skirt has a deep kick pleat.

Capelet:

16.25" long

56" sweep of hem.

lined in spring green (synthetic) which has slightly faded along the shoulder seam lines, which is odd as it is the LINING that has faded, not the exterior. This is not visible when worn.

Jacket:

lined in same fabric as the flip tie on the front of the dress, which is an off-white rayon with an abstract geometric lined novelty print in green, tan and black.

24.5" Long

up to 52" bust

24.25" neck point to sleeve hem

17" wide bell sleeve hem

60" sweep of hem

This is very simply designed, in terms of design lines and seaming: it only has a center back seam, underarm seams, neck point/shoulder/sleeve seams, and bust darts down from the shoulder seam. This provides a very loose fit, and easily slips over the dress'es shoulders.

Fabric: slubbed, heavy mid-weight. Cotton or cotton blend possibly.

The lining/accent fabric feels like smooth rayon.

The fabrications (especially the rayon) suggest 1940s vintage, the slightly dropped waistline is indicative of the late 1930s. Since it was custom made, perhaps the client was fond of the silhouette, and had this made at a later time.

Price is for all three pieces together.
