Vintage 1950s Tweed Wiggle Dress
Classic brown tweedy wiggle dress from the 1950s. That neckline is so charming. Scooped with pretty details. Short sleeves. Skirt has pleats in front at the waist and a kick pleat in back. Metal zipper in back. Skirt part is lined. I'm really not sure what type of fabric this is. It feels like a lightweight cotton with some wool in there, not winter weight for sure but with an autumn vibe. No label. Probably about a small to extra small. Please see condition below as this dress has some issues.
Great vintage condition. I'd call this great even with the flaws simply because its still structurally so very sound. It's certainly not so bad as to warrant going in my Scratch and Dent section. The issues are a few holes, about pea to smaller dime sized. I saw one in the back and about three in front. There are also some pinhead sized holes in front on the bodice as well. A better seamstress than I could perhaps repair these? I really am not sure as I make no claims as to my seamstress skills. But the rest of the dress is really excellent, still so wearable and just a lovely dress all round. Seams are solid, zipper works well. Priced accordingly and as is.
Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at waist and hip. Armpit to armpit across bust: 36.5" Waist: 24" Hips: 39" Shoulder to waist: 15.5" Shoulder to bottom hem: 40"
