This piece is a REPRODUCTION garment made from a 1950s pattern. It wasn't made by me but has been made to a high standard with great attention to detail. I don't know the fibre content but it is quite stiff with a very slight sheen.
It has classic 1950s styling with pleated skirt, 3/4 length sleeves, button front bodice and a smart little collar. A versatile piece which, when accessorized well, would work for day or evening wear.
To ensure that this will fit you properly please compare the measurements below to a similar item you already own;
- flat bust 20.5"
- flat waist 18"
- flat hip 22" there is move room in the skirt but it will distort the pleats slightly if taken much above a 44" hip
- underarm sleeve length 16"
- shoulders between sleeves 16"
- neck to waist 15"
- neck to hem 39.5"
- belt has holes for a 33.5" waist up to a 37"
Very good, looks to have been very little worn. The only minor point to note is a tiny pull/rub on the left sleeve top.
