This is an absolutely beautiful piece.
Made in the 1950's and labelled For You By Blaines it features a close fitting bodice which buttons down the front with faceted glass buttons has bound buttonholes which have been put on the diagonal for style detail. The neckline is glorious and the skirt is almost full. There are pockets in the front of the skirt, the edges of which are bound in the same black as the buttonholes.
Would make a perfect cocktail dress.
This will best fit a 35-25-free but to ensure it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own;
Flat bust 18"
Flat waist 13"
Shoulders between sleeves 15.5"
Underarm sleeve length 1 3/4"
Neck to waist 16"
Neck to hem 48"
Very good with a few minor points to note;
- minor discolouration on the inner neck, not seen when worn
- pocket trims have been repaired
- one pinhead hole in the back of bodice, because of the weave it looks more like a black mark
- stitching above the zip appears to have been re-done by hand
