Please note I have added a crinoline petticoat to show how the dress was originally worn which is not included in the price.
Condition Mint showing no signs of wear.
Size Small to medium (approx AU 10)
Please check measurements as the waist measurements were very small and the girls shorter in the 1950s. Measurements are measured flat on the dress so please remember to allow room to move. It is always a good idea to check measurements against a dress that you know fits
