This is a really pretty dress.
Made in the 1940s, it is made from dark navy base with a geometric print in red and white. It looks to be a home sewn piece and it features a fitted bodice and quite a full, pleated skirt. It fastens down the side with a metal zip. Belt loops but no belt.
The bodice is gathered at the bust and isn't meant to be close fitting. It will best fit up to a 36-28-38 but would work well on smaller and would look great belted. However, to ensure it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar item you already own.
Flat bust 19"
Flat waist 14.5"
Flat hip 20"
Neck to waist 16"
Flat armhole 8"
Very good with just a couple of minor points to note;
- pinhead hole top left shoulder
- pinhead hole left side near zip
- wobbly seams on the waist
