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.
Cute vintage dress by Victor Costa. Pink floral with a metallic sheen. Dolman sleeves, elastic waist, back nylon zipper and gathered cuffs. The back has a panel on the bodice with a cowl neckline which wraps around the waist and ties in front with pink satin. The photo of the side and back of dress also shows the bodice underneath the cowl panel. The bodice is lined but the skirt portion is semi-sheer and will require a half-slip. In excellent condition apart from a spot on either side of one end of the sash and tiny spot on that easily blends in with the pattern, see these in the last photo.
No size tag. Please refer to the measurements listed below, taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate.
Bust - 36 inches
Waist - 24 to 29 inches
Hip - 46 inches
Length from shoulder to hem - 35.5 inches

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.
