•Highlights: princess seams; ruched sleeves; full skirt; rear scoop; Basque waist at rear

•Designer/Labels: none found, but appears commercially made with wide pinked interior seams

All accessories (belts, jewelry, crinolines, pins, etc.) are for style inspiration only unless indicated.


About a modern S to smaller-waisted M; please allow room for fit/ease!

Bust (underarm area measured flat, then doubled) to about 37"

Waist about 27"

Hips full

Shoulder to hem about 43" and has 1 1/2" hem

Sleeves about 13" long


Very good vintage shape, presents beautifully despite minor signs of her age. Cleaned. 60+ years old.

To note: subtle creaminess to the polkadots from age, and 2-3 stray marks on skirt polkadots, only seen if fabric is gone over inch by inch. Faint toning tucked under arms, also hidden during wear. Tiny hole (size of a grain of uncooked rice) at rear side neckline by shoulder, would disappear if fused from inside but doesn't seem to compromise dress, regardless. Dress is stunning, as shown!
