Tagged a VINTAGE 13; I think it suits a smaller modern size L or a roomy M

Bust (underarm area measured flat, then doubled) to about 39"/taut 40"

Waist about 31"/taut 32"

Hips full

Length, shoulder to natural (fitted) waist area about 16"

Shoulder to hem about 53"


Overall great vintage shape. Clean and sturdy. 40+ years old.

Couple things to note: slight wonkiness to the bodice's boning, as is typical of old boned pieces. These should straighten out and function better on a body that fits the dress vs. my dress forms, but could be removed or redone if you want them "perfect."

The shoulder straps seemed to run long on my dress forms. Straps are easily adjusted to suit your preferences by either safety-pinning them inside or a simple sewing job.
