Vintage 1950s Dress / Bright Pink Silk Dress
Vintage Clothing and Kimonos are not sized the same as modern manufactured clothing. Everything sold by ThisBlueBird will include actual garment measurements in inches. When choosing an item please refer to the measurements and compare them with a similar style garment you already own. Please note the measurements are actual garment measurements and you must leave 2 to 3 inches between your actual measurements and the garment for ease of movement.
The charts on this page are here to assist you in understanding how vintage clothing and kimonos are measured and where you should measure on your body.
There is one original tag hanging from the zipper that indicates 100% silk and another sewn inside that says "Remarks: Silk Linen." The original fabric sample is also still attached on the interior tag. There is no maker's mark.
Vintage tag size 20 1/2. The dress is shown on a modern US size 12 dress form and it was clipped in back for shape. This dress would best fit at least a US size 12 to 14. Please refer to measurements in inches taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate. Please leave yourself some room in the measurements for ease of movement.
