hips - free up to 52”
shoulder to drop waist - 17”
length - 48”
*measurements are taken with garment lying flat and then doubled for bust, waist, and hips. These are the measurements of the garment, please remember to leave yourself a little wiggle room.
Condition: Very good vintage condition especially considering the age of the dress. There are a few areas where the stitches have slightly pulled and a few small age spots that did not life completely. On one of the waist ties there is two small darns and I also found some pin holes and tiny snags throughout the dress . I also reinforced a stressed seam on one underarm. One of the sash ties has a seam on it that was some stress. Please see photos of flaws for more details. Despite its flaws, the dress presents beautifully for its age and is very wearable with appropriate care.
*items are vintage and previously owned. I have done my best to describe items as accurately as possible, however small flaws may go unnoticed.
