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.
Fab 1970s festival dress which appears to have been made from a vintage 1950s/60s tan / ecru cotton-blend crocheted tablecloth. It is hourglass in shape, has large bell sleeves and a scoop neckline in front and back and tiny ivory scalloped edging. There are no zippers etc, slips on over the head. It is not lined and will need a slip or something else underneath. There are few very faint spots, they are barely noticeable and since this dress is the same front and back these could be positioned to the back, they are pointed out in last photo. The sash shown in the photos is not original to the dress and was made from modern ivory lace, it will be included with this dress.
No tags. There is a bit of stretch to this just like a cotton sweater so it will accommodate a large size than indicated by measurements depending on one's preference. Leave room for movement and for an under slip or garments. Measurements are approximate, taken flat and then doubled where necessary.
All measurements are given unstretched.

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.
