Decade: 1950s Size: 10
Vintage Type: True Vintage Chest Size: 38
Material: Cotton Waist Size: 27
Brand: Unknown
Vintage 1950s day/sun dress with a wonderful novelty print inspired by Piet Mondrian. The fitted bodice has little elasticated puff sleeves; and the elasticated neckline can be worn on or off the shoulders. Full, gathered skirt. Fastens with a centre back metal zip, and still has its matching belt. It appears homemade, but the presence of overlocked seams suggests not, but there are no labels.

Measurements  - don't forget to leave a little room for comfort and ease of movement!

Bust 38"
Waist 27"
Centre Back Bodice Length 7.5"
Skirt Length 25"
Hem just under 2"

I would say this would fit a UK size 10 best but PLEASE make sure you know your own measurements, and go by those instead of my size guide! I've noticed here on the eBay vintage pages that there seems to be a vastly differing opinion with sizes!!!! And this is just my guesstimate.

Condition


Overall in perfectly wearable condition, but it does have flaws.
Firstly, most of the yellow parts of the dress have run slightly, including a little on the belt. It's nothing too drastic, and if this dress suited me I'd be perfectly happy to wear it 'as is'. Do be aware that you're unlikely to be able to do anything about the colour run, it's gonna be permanent, so keep that in mind when bidding.
There are two little pin head holes around the right bust area.
There are two little white marks to one pink square on the skirt back.
There are a few small pale grey marks scattered on the skirt - mostly barely perceptible.
The zip hasn't been particularly well sewn in.
Light discolour around inner neckline.

I do not accept returns. Please make sure you have read the description carefully, especially the condition and measurements part (and please make sure you know you own personal measurements), so you know what you are getting, and if you need to know anything else please ask.

Please take a look at my other vintage auctions, all starting at 99p. Postage gladly combined. Depending on the weight, I could probably send 2 dresses for £5 within the UK.

YES, I will consider BUY IT NOW prices! Just send me an email with the items you're interested in, and how much you were thinking of, and I'll consider it! But please don't be offended if I say no, or counter offer :)

I do not send out anything without a tracking number, this makes overseas postage quite expensive, I'm sorry. Overseas buyers, I will combine postage, but I need to know which dresses you're interested in and your location before I can give you a shipping quote for more than one item.

I sometimes use petticoats to show the fullness of skirts, and these are not included in the sale.

I do not accept returns. Please make sure you have read the description carefully, especially the condition and measurements part (and please make sure you know you own personal measurements), so you know what you are getting, and if you need to know anything else please ask.

If you do happen to be unhappy when you receive something, please contact me before leaving feedback and let's try to resolve the problem amicably between ourselves without resorting to damaging feedback.

Within the UK I can accept payments by PayPal, cheque, or postal order.

Buyers from outside the UK, I can only accept PayPal.

Buyers outside of Europe, please do be aware of your own country's tax/custom rules, and know that these are not included in the price you pay me, and may possibly have to be paid before delivery of your item.

About me....

My name is Tessa, I'm 32, and I've been wearing and collecting vintage clothing for well over a decade. I started wearing 1960s and 70s stuff, but very some came to realise that I favoured the 'New Look' silhouette of the late 1940s, into the 1950s. I believe this style suits my odd (by odd, I mean does not conform to modern day standards) figure better too - I have soooo much trouble buying modern clothing!
I have a huge collection dresses and skirts from late 1940s into the early 60s, in fact I have a whole room dedicated to my collection! I mainly concentrate on 1950s novelty printed cotton dresses and skirts, and Horrockses Fashions dresses - of which I may have one of the largest collections at 122.
 You'll notice that this is also mainly what I sell (apart from the Horrockses, which I very rarely let go of). If you're anything like me your vintage collection is constantly evolving and changing; you have some things you know you'll keep forever, some you keep for 6 months or year and get bored of them, or just decide they're not right for you afterall, or some you realise instantly after trying on that they're not right for you despite how much you love them! So the vast majority of items I sell have been bought for myself originally, but I've decided aren't right for me for one reason or another. And there's usually a large range of sizes because I'm a bit of a yoyo dieter! In the last 18 months, this is terrible to admit, but I've been every waist size between 23 and 31 inches! Yikes!
I also have an Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/RainbowValleyVintage
It's quite sad to say it, but vintage is pretty much my life - I live and breathe it, and am constantly surrounded by it!

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
