Measurements

Fits about a modern PETITE/junior S to M; please allow room for fit/ease!

Bust (underarm area measured flat, then doubled) to about 36"

Waist about 28"

Hips full

Shoulder to waist about 14 7/8" (I believe it was altered to be more short-waisted, does have maybe an inch of extra fabric inside bodice at waist seam that could be reversed)

Shoulder to hem about 37 1/2" and has 1" hem

Shoulders seam to seam about 14" and your own shoulders project past this to the puff sleeve area, 16" shoulders are fine here

Sleeves about 10"

Armhole opening about 16 1/2"

Condition

About 90% great shape, BUT 10% poor condition. Priced and sold as-is. 85+ years old.

One pencil point-sized hole above side snap placket, and seems like it might benefit from one more hidden snap added to this same area. Otherwise she's in rather pristine shape. That is, until you get near the hem.

Unfortunately, her skirt suffered a minor zombie attack... I count at least 5 significant holes that are about the size a finger's tip would make pushed through fabric, plus some minor imperfections clustered satellite-style around these booboos. 

See photos.

Can be made into a blouse, shortened, or mended. There's all the fabric you could need for clever patching located inside the bodice at the rear neck facing panel. Add cute trim and/or contrasting patches to cover the flaws. Layer over a slip, or just rock her the way she is and have fun. WAY too cute not to salvage!

(If you are condition-picky, please do leave this doll for those of us who don't mind flaws. If this were bigger in the chest, I would keep/wear!)
