♛Measurements

I believe this one is a Gunne size 11 or 13. Somebody yoiked the size tag, but thankfully left the label.

As you know, these sizes run much smaller by today's standards.

Bust (underarm area measured flat, then doubled) to about 38"

Waist (empire) 32"

Hips full/about 42"

Bodice length, shoulder to empire waist about 14"

Shoulder to hem about 54"

Shoulders, seam to seam about 16"

Sleeves about 24"

♛Condition

Very good vintage shape, sold as-found. 50+ years old.

Needs dry cleaning. She's got 3 faint splashes on the backside skirt of the dress; I took a photo of the "worst" one. Trace toning under arms and tucked into the ruched bustline, only found when inspected closely. Otherwise solid shape. Same dress elsewhere is priced $350-1200. We got her for a good price, and would like to pass her on to a loving home.
