LABEL STATES UK 12, EUR 38 US 10 BUT IMPORTANT NOTE ON FITTING: THESE
DRESSES WERE INTENDED TO WEAR LOOSE (AND THEY NEED
LOOSENESS AT THE HIPS TO LOOK RIGHT)
ALSO - VINTAGE SIZING IS
NOTHING LIKE MODERN, SO I AM GIVING THE EXACT MEASUREMENTS LAID FLAT.
THAT WAY – YOU DECIDE HOW LOOSE YOU
ARE GOING TO BE HAPPY WITH. GRAB A TAPE MEASURE AND CHECK ALL THESE
MEASUREMENTS WORK FOR YOU
BUST (MEASURED PIT TO PIT) IS 18” (so DOUBLE TO 36”)
BUT HONESTLY BUST 32”- 34” Would give better (slightly looser) fit
WAIST – effectively freesize due to style
HIPS (Very Important) 19” (so double to 38”)
BUT –IF YOU HAVE 37”/37” HIPS THIS WILL NOT SUIT: YOU
NEED EVEN SLIMMER HIPS THAN THAT
BECAUSE OF THE STYLE. I WOULD SAY 34”-35” HIPS WOULD BE PERFECT, SO THE DRESS
CAN HAVE SWINGY LOOSENESS AS IT WAS STYLED TO HAVE.
(YOU HAVE TO BE VINTAGE SAVVY WITH THESE DRESSES. NOTHING LOOKS MORE GHASTLY THAN SOMEONE SQUASHED INTO A DROP
WAIST DRESS. IF THE HIP LINE IS NOT LOOSE IT CUTS IN JUST UNDER THE TUMMY.
YUK!!! TRUST ME, I’M AN EXPERT ON
EXCESSIVE TUMMIES : - ) AND I AM
MADE OF SMOOTH LINEN (30%) and COTTON (70%) MIX - perfect for SPRING AND EASTER TIME WEARING…
CRISP, FRESH LOOKING
OVERALL EXCELLENT VINTAGE CONDITION – No alterations –
has original hemline. BUT PLEASE NOTE – THIS DRESS HAS SOME SLIGHT IMPERFECTIONS.
(1) TEENSY WEENSY MARK ON RIBBON.
(2) 2 TINY BROWN MARKS ON INSIDE
(3) ZIP – DOES NOT PULL DOWN PROPERLY
ALL THE WAY: IT’S A 22” LONG ZIP AND WILL NOT GO OPEN PAST 20” BUT
REALISTICALLY IF YOU ARE SLIM ENOUGH TO FIT THIS DRESS THAT WILL NOT POSE A PROBLEM
FOR GETTING IT ON. I JUST LIKE TO BE 100% HONEST ABOUT SUCH STUFF.
THESE SAILOR DRESSES ARE OFTEN LISTED ON EBAY FOR WELL
OVER £100 BECAUSE THEY ARE SUCH ICONIC STATEMENT ASHLEY DRESSES – THEY ARE
HIGHLY DESIRABLE – BUT I AM LISTING THIS FOR AUCTION AT A SILLY LOW START
PRICE. GRAB IT OR KISS IT BYE BYE FOREVER!! : - )
ALSO I HAVE ANOTHER ONE LISTED – SLIGHTLY BIGGER THAN
