This classic wiggle dress was made in the 1950's from a cotton rayon mix in grey.
It has a close fitting design with three-quarter length sleeves, seaming detail down the side bodice, pockets, a contrast collar in black and a simple tie at the neck. It fastens down the back with a long metal zip.
A great wardrobe staple for a vintage lover.
It is meant to be close fitting but to ensure that it will fit you properly please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own;
Flat bust 18"
Flat waist 13" so a tight 26" waist maximum
Flat hip 19"
Underarm sleeve length 12.5"
Shoulder to waist 16.5"
Shoulder to hem 45.5"
Good with some points to note;
- there are two small darns - one on the left shoulder and the other on the right front bodice
- there is minor underarm discolouration
- a spot mark on the front skirt at hip level - see photo
- minor faint iron shine in some places
