About a modern smaller L or roomy M -- please allow room for fit and ease, there is some give as noted but you must be smaller than the dress to fit

Bust (underarm area measured flat, then doubled) to about 42" taut (slack and hanging it is 38")

Waist about 29"/taut 31" unbelted

Hips to 42"/taut 46"

Shoulder to waist seam about 16"

Shoulder to hem about 44 3/4" and has 1" turned up


Great vintage shape overall BUT sold as-is -- she had a few flaws near the hem. Cleaned. 40+ years old.

Dress essentially looks crisp and pristine to the eye, but the skirt had 2-3 small holes at side skirt above the hem that I carefully mended, borrowing matching fabric from inside allowances. The mends aren't noticed during wear/use but are factored in the pricing. A great way to get the look for less!
