Label: No label, but manufacturer made
Description: This is a wonderful ribbed cotton house dress featuring a leopard print, so popular at the time. The dress does up with a metal zipper at the front from the neckline to 15" from the hemline. It has a square pocket applied to either lower side. It has 3/4 length sleeves and has a rounded high neckline that is accented with black satin ribbon and ties. There is black satin piping at either side of the zipper, at the top of the pockets and along the turned cuffs of the sleeves. The dress is unlined. Please note that the dress was too large for my mannequin, so was pinned back for the photos - the silhouette/fit may appear slightly different on your body.
Color: Light brown, dark brown/black and off-white
Material: Cotton with a ribbed finish
Sizing: No size is indicated, but this would fit a large size. It is meant to be meant as a loose garment - please note the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the dress into consideration:
Shoulders: 17 1/2" across the top
Bust: 44" around, taken under the arms
Waist: 34" around - a belt may help in giving the dress more "shape"
Hips: 44" around
Overall length: 42", measured flat
It is in excellent condition with no wear, tear, staining or odors. I'm sure that this dress was never used.
This is a really great 50s era house dress....fabulous print....
