50s White Lace Full Skirt Party Dress - sm

SKU: 00608-001

From the 1950s, a splendid party dress in alternating "stripes" of delicately textured white fabric and soft net lace. Sleeveless, princess-seamed bodice has bust darts and crossover detail at tops of shoulders. Almost-a-full-circle skirt has a built-in net petticoat (we show it with an additional extra-full crinoline, not included). Cinches with its original, matching belt. Lined at bodice. Closes at the side with a metal zipper. From my personal collection. 

Labels: none - if it's home sewn, it was a great deal of work!

Fiber/Care: no tags, textured fabric is a cotton-blend organdy with a tiny bit of sheen, the lace is a cotton/nylon blend, dry-cleaning recommended

Condition: there's a small spot on the side of the belt, as shown. the zipper is a bit ornery, but fully functional. I bought this several years ago to wear to renew my vows, but our plans changed. I've never worn it and it looks nearly new. 

*We've had this party dress professionally dry-cleaned and it's ready to wear.*

Garment Measurements:
- seam allowance in the bodice, all the way to the waist, would allow for at least a 3" increase at any point. see detail shot in last photo compilation -
 bust: 36"/91.5cm plus a bit more from the darts
 waist: 26"/66cm
 hips: free
 length: 39"/99cm
 sweep: 144"/366cm

For reference, the dress fits me well, and I measure b: 35.5" (32D), w: 26.5". It is clipped to better fit Delphine in the photos. She measures b: 32", w: 24" and is quite tall.
