This piece is simple yet stylish in design. It has a close fitting bodice, a waist insert which has a tie back belt attached to it, purple glass buttons and a neat little collar.
The fabric is not showing the true colour. It isn't a flat colour and has strands of brown and a pink, it's much prettier than the photos show.
A wonderfully weighty fabric, it has fabulous drape. There is no side opening so you'll need to fit your bust through the waist measurement.
This will fit up to a 40-36-48 but also looks great belted smaller. To ensure it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar item you already own;
Flat bust 21"
Flat waist 20" but the smallest the biggest the belt can tie to is 36"
Flat hip 26"
Shoulders between sleeves 15.5"
Underarm sleeve length 14"
Shoulder to waist 15"
Shoulder to hem 42.5"
Good with points to note.
- there are approximately 21 pinhead holes in the dress - because the fabric isn't one flat colour they aren't too obvious. They could be darned but that would most likely make them more obvious
- there is a 1" mark on the right sleeve - see photo
- there is a repair on the right sleeve where it joins the bodice on the front - see photo
