Absolutely stunning royal blue ribbon knit dress from the 1940s, possibly early 1950s. Might be silk or a silk blend. Wiggle stye with a wide scoop neckline and half sleeves. Unlined. Label feads: Hand loomed, Snyderknit California sportswear. I'd say about a large to extra large but do see measurements below

Excellent to great vintage condition. There are some scattered pea size holes, and some attempts at repairs. And there is scattered discoloration, and some sun fade along the shoulder line. See photos for examples.

Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at waist and hip
Armpit to armpit across bust: 34" at rest up to about 50"
Waist: 26" up to about 36" as is BUT there is elastic cord in the waist that it tied in a knot with lots of extra cord...loosen that to re-tie where needed, or leave untied, and you can get several more inches
Hips: 34" up to about 50"
Shoulder to waist: 16.5"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 48"
