1980s Vintage Royal Blue Art Deco Beaded Trophy Cocktail 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.
Tag size is XL but I think this fits more like a medium to large. It is shown on a US size 6 dress form and fit quite loose. It also fits well on the size 10 form. There is a little stretch to the bias cut but I really think 10 is the maximum size for this dress unless you have a preference for a very form fitting look.
The measurements listed below were taken while dress was laying flat and doubled where appropriate.

Waist - 36 inches (91.44 cm)
