This is a lovely cotton dress which is perfect for the summer.
A home sewn piece which was made in the 1950s, it is made from a medium weight cotton rayon mix with a checkerboard and cherry stripe print. Front opening bodice, little neat collar and a pleated skirt it is a charming piece.
The seamstress who made this piece has sewn it to a good standard, but clearly they were not keen on buttonholes or zips because the front bodice fastens with poppers, the buttons are decoration only, and there is no side opening. Please bear this in mind when considering the fit because you'll need to be able to wiggle your bust through the waist opening.
Please note the belt shown in the photos is NOT included. It has been used to show how the dress will look belted.
This will fit up to a 38-32-40 but please check the measurements below to be sure that it will fit you. Note there is no side opening.
Flat bust 21"
Flat waist 17.5"
Flat hip 24"
Back neck to waist 16"
Back neck to hem 43"
Very good condition and only shows minor signs of wear. Only minor point to note is that there are a few small single thread pulls on the fabric.
