Pretty day dress from the 1950s. Somewhat abstract floral print in oranges on a white background. I love the peplum across the back. They look like dandelions perhaps? Simple, classic shape, short sleeves, buttons at the neckline and a metal zipper at the side. Looks and feels like acetate. Label reads: none. Medium to large I'd say.
Great to excellent vintage condition. Its missing one button. I think I'd just move the top button down to the spot where one is missing and leave it as is. There is some color fade in random areas too. There is also some pulling at some of the seams across the backside and hips and an armpit. See the photos for examples. A better seamstress than I could easily crate new seams over these but it will of course make this a bit tighter so fact that into the measurements given. It is wearable as is so for a costume or photoshoot or something of that nature its fine. Priced accordingly and as is.
Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip.
Armpit to armpit across bust: 42"
Shoulder to waist: 15.5"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 44"
