A charming evening dress in pretty primrose yellow net.
Made in the 1950s by Lee Delman, it has a close fitting bodice with scalloped edge sleeves. Tafetta lining overlaid with net in a floral design. The skirt has three layers and it looks beautiful on. It has an inset back zip and is suitable for someone petite. It would originally have had a wide sash belt but that has long since gone. Would look great with a yellow and cream satin ribbon as a belt. A real fairy tale dress!
This is for someone very petite. Because of the inset back zip, it is a bit of a wiggle to get into it. Best suited to a tight 34-23-38 but to be sure it will fit, please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own;
Flat bust 17"
Flat waist 12"
Shoulders from outer edge of shoulder pads 15"
Shoulder to waist 17"
Shoulder to hem 54"
It is in very good condition with a couple of minor points to note;
- it has no belt
- there is a 12mm hole in the skirt near the hem, but this is lost within the folds
- there are some marks on the taffeta underskirt, these are not seen when worn as they are covered by two net layers
