1950s Vintage Floral Print Summer 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 are no tags, this dress may have been home sewn. Made of rayon acetate. The dress is shown on a modern US size 8 dress form (35"/26.5"/36.9") and it was somewhat difficult to get on past the form's shoulders. There is no stretch to this fabric. Also note the sleeve circumference at the cuff is very small.
