Fits a range depending on the fit you like; please allow room for ease 

Bust (underarm area doubled) about 36" fully closed down the front, 40" pulled more tight

Waistband about 22" slack, 28" pulled more taut

Shoulder to hem about 18 3/4"

Shoulders about 15 1/2"

Very good vintage condition with some tiny scattered imperfections. Cleaned and shows light normal previous use. 60+ years old.

To note: one of the (completely hidden) front buttons is a replacement. There are a few small moth nips scattered on this very cool piece, which I attempted to capture in the photos so do look them over closely. One small faint tan spot on top of shoulder where it's not normally noticed. Priced/sold as-is. None of this attracts attention -- the rhinestones are super sparkly, probably Austrian crystals.
