DESCRIPTION: 1970s handmade cotton floral maxi dress featuring a floral pattern, Swiss dot finish, puff sleeves and lace accents.
MEASUREMENTS: Shoulder to Shoulder―16 inches Chest―17 inches Waist―13.5 inches Hip―19 inches Length―55.5 inches Sleeve Length―10 inches Sleeve Band Circumference (no stretch)―10.5 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: x-small to small; probably best suited for a smaller bust
CONDITION: This garment is in very good vintage condition. There are a few small, repaired holes at the bottom of the back of the skirt that seem to have been addressed by hand with a white tread. There was also some set-in surface grime in the same area. The stain faded drastically when the garment was cleaned and will likely continue to diminish with further cleaning. Neither of these issues are obvious when the dress is worn. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means 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.
COLOR: Yellow-hued cream ground; orange, yellow, green, purple and pink floral pattern; cream lace accents with green banding underneath.
MORE INFORMATION: This is a handmade garment and has no retail tags or labels. The fabric appears to be a lightweight cotton or rayon, lined with an acetate/poly in the skirts. The fabric would be appropriate for spring, summer and fall, and is on the casual side. I would recommend hand-washing with gentle detergent and hanging to dry.
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. 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.
