Please be aware Black Cat Clothiers is operating out of Philadelphia, PA which is currently impacted by COVID-19. Due to this, I will be shipping less frequently to minimize my exposure at the post office. All orders will be sent instructions for how to safely handle your package when it arrives, as COVID-19 may live on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Current processing time is 2-5 business days. Be safe and thank you for understanding.
Delightful 1950/60s patterned party frock featuring a full, tiered skirt, bow, quarter-length sleeves and grosgrain ribbon accents. Perfect for a tea party or special event! Unlined, side zipper. Eligible for layaway, please contact me for more information.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →shoulder to shoulder: 14.5 inches →bust: 34 inches →waist: 26 inches →hips: free →length: 36 inches →sleeve length: 15 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: Petite X-Small to Small
CONDITION: Great restored vintage condition. This dress came to me with large rips, which a seamstress lovingly repaired. The grosgrain ribbons are additions to save the dress's structure, but the idea was taken from similar designs of the appropriate era. There are a few light runs in the bottom skirt, mostly hidden by the peplum. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents label; likely home or seamstress made. Appears to be made of a light, silky blend. Dry clean only.
PLEASE NOTE: Because sizing varies greatly based on year, brand and garment type, we recommend you compare the measurements noted above to an article of clothing you already own that fits you well. All garments are measured lying flat unless otherwise noted. Black Cat Clothiers cannot accept returns due to fit, so please pay careful attention to these measurements and ask questions before purchasing! Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear. Take a look at our store policies for more information.
