Vintage 1950s Green Wool Tweed Dress With Belt
One of my current shop favorites. I absolutely love this stunning classy wool tweed dress from the 50s in a pretty highland green color flecked with touches of red, blue and yellow. Classic wiggle shape skirt with a kick pleat in back. Long dolman sleeves for a slight blousey effect, high scoop neck and five matching fabric covered buttons at the back of the neck. Metal zipper below that. Medium sized, I'd say. And long in the body, great for a taller girl. I've actually shown two different versions of a full length front shot of this. One is with the belt right at the waist. The other is with the belt a little higher and with the dress laying on my dress form where the waist would hit her naturally. To show you what it would llook like if you are either longer in the torso or not. Skirt is lined, bodice is not. No label.
Excellent vintage condition. Almost perfect. There is one pea sized very faint brown spot on the bodice, see last photo, but its almost impossible to see unless you're actively looking for it.
Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip. Armpit to armpit across bust: 40" dolman Waist: 28" Hips: 40" Shoulder to waist: 16.5" approx. There is no definite shoulder seam. Shoulder to bottom hem: 46"
The belt has holes ranging from 24" to 28".
