Now, as a horror author and lifetime goth-at-heart, you KNOW I see a skeleton's hand bones when I look at this one, but maybe it was originally supposed to represent bamboo?? Be that as it may, I got a lot of comments back from other folks who see nuthin' but bones, here, and I honestly can't look at it without my mind going right there. You will definitely get noticed and complimented!

ShopPay can be used at checkout to pay in four interest-free installments, but your dress ships in our next shipment.

•Fabric(s): I believe it's a rayon mimicking silk, with a "painted" print

•Lined: the fabric is self-lined

•Closures: rear metal zipper

•Designer/Labels: tiny tuft at the back neck is all that remains :(

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


Fits about a modern M; please allow room for fit/ease!

Bust (underarm area measured flat, then doubled) to about 36"/maybe a taut 38"

Waist to about 28"

Hips full/42"

Shoulder to hem about 42 1/2" and has little 1/2"

Sleeves capped/1"


Presents beautifully. Cleaned and sturdy. 65+ years old.

Great overall, but I found a few small holes lurking near the hem, truly not something that stands out during wear -- like it got caught on something back in the day. See photos.

Two of the smaller rhinestones gone from buttons, but I will replace them before shipping from my vintage stash.
