LABEL STATES UK 16, EUR 42 US 14 BUT
IMPORTANT NOTE ON FITTING: THESE DRESSES WERE INTENDED TO WEAR LOOSE (AND THEY NEED LOOSENESS AT THE HIPS TO LOOK RIGHT) AND VINTAGE
SIZING IS NOTHING LIKE MODERN, I AM GIVING THE EXACT MEASUREMENTS LAID FLAT.
THAT WAY – YOU DECIDE HOW LOOSE YOU ARE GOING TO BE
BUST (MEASURED PIT TO PIT) IS 20” (so DOUBLE TO 40”)
WAIST (Well, where the waist would be if it wasn’t a
drop waist number) also 20”
HIPS (Very Important) 22” (so double to 44”
BUT – AS I SAID ABOVE, YOU NEED SLIMMER HIPS THAN THAT
BECAUSE OF THE STYLE. I WOULD SAY 38” WOULD BE PERFECT, TO 40 MAX IF YOU ARE
HAPPY WITH LESS LOOSENESS.
MADE OF SMOOTH COTTON - perfect for even the hottest summer day
OVERALL EXCELLENT VINTAGE CONDITION – No alterations –
has original hemline. THERE IS A MINISCULE BROWN MARK ON THE SKIRT – AT THE
BACK & ABOUT 6” UP FROM THE HEM,
WHICH I HAVE PHOTOGRAPHED. ONLY VISBLE BY PEERING UP CLOSE IN CLEAR DAYLIGHT
BUT I LIKE TO BE TOTALLY HONEST. I HAVE PHOTOGRAPHED IT WITH A UK 5p PIECE TO
GIVE A SENSE OF SCALE.
MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN
Freshly hand washed and pressed – ready to wear
