Double breasted bodice with side metal zipper and original belt. There is a generous hem allowance; skirt could be lengthened several inches if desired. Fabric is bright and bold and shows very little sign of wear.

3 – Excellent Condition. Small spot on shoulder, small darker area area on skirt, see images for closeups. Previous owner wrote their name in ballpoint pen inside dress collar and on inside of belt (This was part of a costume collection.) The buckle on belt is hand-stitched and covered with the same fabric, the buckle inside feels to be plastic and is broken in several spots, however the buckle is still functional.

We rate on a scale of 1 to 4, 1 being as found and 4 being mint condition.

PLEASE NOTE: these measurements are exact. Chest measurements are taken flat and doubled. Please choose a garment that will fit you according to your preference- if you want a slim fit, choose a garment that is up to an inch smaller than your actual measurement (or if the fabric has stretch.) If the garment is a stiffer fabric or you prefer a looser fit, go 2-3 inches larger than your actual chest measurement, especially for outer wear.
