•Highlights: adorable hand-made dress (I believe more properly a crochet than a knit?) can be worn on its own or as a jumper; wide straps; fitted waist; A-line skirt; perfect canvas to dress up or down

•Colors: a warm French vanilla creme

•Fabric(s): feels like wool with a fine, tight, flat crochet type scallop stitch...expertly done!

•Lined: no

•Closures: no

•Designer/Labels: hand-made in the era with love with love and skill

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


About an XS, maybe up to the small end of M, max. Obviously if you are smaller it'll fit more loosely, and larger figures will have more a body conscious, snug fit.  Please allow room for fit and ease as desired.

Bust (underarm area measured flat, then doubled) to about 32" slack, 38" stretched

Waist about 26" unstretched, 29" stretched

Hips about 40"/44" stretched

Length of bodice shoulder to center of waistband 16"

Full length about 44"


Great shape with light signs of age/use. Cleaned. 70+ years old.

To note: I found an old darn at rear below waistband -- I found it by touch! It's carefully done and charming, to my eyes (see close-up).

At hem, there are a couple tiny faint yellow dots and a pink dot. See photo.

Rear INSIDE neckline shows a touch of age toning. This does not go to the outside of dress, it's mentioned for accuracy. Tiny pull in pattern in same area (back neckline)...only found that when held against a light source.
