This vintage 1950s dress delights in rose printed challis and has cap sleeves, a button front, a side zipper, a skirt with a 106 inch sweep and a saucy back peplum. The challis is a perfect weight with a nice hand and has a corn silk yellow background printed with roses in various stages from bud to bloom in vibrant colors of fuchsia pink to crimson red with spring green to emerald foliage accents. The buttons are a silvery pewter color and the peplum and sleeves are lined in green and the skirt is gathered in a smocking like fashion. The side zip is the early type with teeth that was used from 1930 to 1960, it is not the later hidden type zipper. Based on the style I date this to the 1950s and have included a picture of a 1950s dress pattern that is very similar in style. The dress is in wonderful vintage condition, there are no holes or stains, just the odd loose thread that may need a stitch here and there and it is clean and fresh and ready to wear. This may be homemade, there are no labels or tags to indicate maker, fabrication or size. If it was home sewn, the seamstress had excellent skills, the dress has a darted bust and a fitted back and a well done placket for the zipper. Comparing the measurements, listed below, to Ruby Lane's size charts this should fit a size 4 to a size 6. The best way to gauge fit is to measure a dress that fits you comfortably to these measurements. I've shown the dress with a lace slip that is not very full, it would look fabulously flirtatious with a pouffy petticoat. This sweet confection of a dress will make you feel like an ingenue, it's one of my all time favorites and is sure to become one of your favorites too! Measurements in inches: Chest: 34. Shoulders: 16. Bodice: 12. Skirt: 22. Length, shoulder to hem: 36. Hips: open. Hem: 1 1/2.
