Seems to be about a modern XS to smaller M; please allow room for ease and the kind of fit you desire.

Bust (underarm area doubled) 32" hanging slack on hanger to about 40" pulled taut/flat

Waist area 32" hanging slack, 38" pulled taut

Shoulder to hem about 23"

Shoulders about 15 3/4" through seams and your shoulders will go inside the gathered area

Sleeves, shoulder to cuff about 21 1/2"


Very good vintage condition. Cleaned and bright. 60-70+ years old.

Noted: came to me with some rust speckles and dots on both shoulders (and one tiny one on high back) from an old metal hanger; after cleaning, much improved/faded, but not perfect. See photos. Still a treasure and a beauty.
