$36.86

Shipping to United States: $23.46

This is a very pretty pale blue chiffon dress, with a yellow, blue, lilac, white and green floral design. I particularly like the way that the pattern matches on either side of the buttoned front. The buttons to the front and cuffs are covered in the same fabric and are topped with pale blue beads. The cuffs are secured with press studs under the buttons. There is a tiny button and loop at the collar. This dress is fully lined, and probably made in the late 1960s or early 1970s. There are no fabric or care labels.

CONDITION

🔸This dress is in good used vintage condition.
🔸The buttons are all present and secure with no bead loss.
🔸Seams appear strong although there is a little fraying to the lining in places.
🔹The underarms have been strengthened or repaired, and darts have been let out at the back. These alterations are not noticeable when worn. Please see photo 5.
🔹There are 2 tiny holes in the chiffon on one sleeve. You really do need to look for them. I've put pins by these holes. Again, not noticable when worn. Please see photo 5.

This dress fits like a UK size 10. If the darts were reinstated it would fit UK size 8. I have taken flat measurements of the dress and doubled them to give an estimate of hip, waist, bust. Please ensure that you check these measurements against a dress that fits you well.

BUST 36" or 91cm
WAIST 32" or 81cm
HIP 39" or 99cm
Nape to hem 38.5" or 98cm
Shoulder to shoulder 16" or 40.7cm
Wrist circumference 6.5" or 16.5cm. There is room for the press studs to be moved.

This dress would be great for Goodwood, a wedding, or a day at the races.
