Pretty full skirt is softly pleated at waistline with a flat panel at front and hidden pocket on one side. Has a 29cm (11 1/2 inch) hemline allowing skirt to be lengthened if desired.
The silk dress has an original, narrow, self-covered belt and same-fabric flower detail at waist. Not lined and closes at the back with a long metal zip.
Please note the dress is shown with a crinoline petticoat for fullness of skirt. This is not included in the price.
Condition Excellent vintage condition showing no signs of wear. Silk dress has possibly never been worn.
Size MEDIUM (approx AU 10-12)
Please check measurements to be sure as the waist measurements were very small and the girls shorter in the 1950s. Measurements are measured flat on 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.
