1950s Vintage Garden Party Blue Floral Print 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.
Beautiful vintage 1950s garden party dress. Blue floral print silk with fitted bodice, and a drop waist a-line skirt. Lined in netting and the skirt is lined in stiff muslin which acts as a crinoline. It is in good condition, it has some seam stress in a few places on the bodice area, there is one tiny faint spot, and faint underarm discoloration. There is what might be a spot of fading on the right bust, but due to the multi tones of blue and white in the fabric, it is hard to tell if it is true fading or part of the print. These are pointed out in the last photo.
No tags. Please refer to measurements in inches taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate.
Bust - 36 inches (91.44 cm)
Waist at narrowest point - 30 inches (76.2 cm)
Hips - Free
Length from top of strap to hem - 49 inches (124.46 cm)
ABOUT VINTAGE CLOTHING SIZES
Vintage clothing sizes run smaller than modern clothing sizes and there is no industry standard sizing chart for modern women's clothing. When purchasing vintage clothes, it is important to know your own true body measurements and compare those to the garment measurements provided. Please take a moment to review this chart on how to take your own body measurements, so you can correctly determine if this item will fit you. Be sure to always leave several inches between your measurements and the garment measurement for proper fit and ease of movement. Returns due to improper fit will not be approved.
