Larger Size Vintage Navy blue Raw Silk Sheath with Floral Appliquees, Petty Hite, ca 1950s

$132.00 USD


Please note: this dress has been clipped to fit my mannequin

This pretty dress is in excellent vintage condition: the only flaw I can find is that the threaded bloop has gone missing on one side as has the belt. Please be sure to note the vividly colored, floral satin appliquees and the double pair of loops that are so flattering to the waist. Although the interior tag read size 16 1/2, this dress is more likely a size 12-14 by today's standards. The lining is blue silky satin.

Approximate measurements:
shoulder to shoulder: 13"
armpit to armpit: 19"
waist (flat): 16"
hips (flat): 18 1/2"
back length: 35"
back (metal) zipper: 21"

What a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection; it is a beautiful example of 1950s wearable textile art and fashion.
