Vintage 1950s Crinoline Skirt Dress Abstract Print Pattern Size S
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 1950s era “crinoline” dress made a fabric that is printed in a brown abstract design. I’m not positive, but I think that the fabric is silk - if not, it’s some sort of very good quality material that has a bit of stiffness, almost like a paper taffeta. The dress is sleeveless and has a wide scoop neckline, defined waist and the skirt is cut full, like a circle skirt. It is posed with a crinoline, but no crinoline is supplied, so if you would want the same flared out look, if you have to supply your own crinoline. The dress does up the back with a metal zipper. It is lined in white acetate above the waist, but the skirt is unlined.
Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a small size, or at least a small bust with a medium size waist - please note the following measurements for fit, taking into account the style of the dress:
Bust: 32”-33” around, taken at the underarms
Waist: 28” around
Hips: Full / 60”, meant to fall loosely
Length: 43” long, measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear, stains or odours - this dress looks to have seen little use and was well stored over the years.
This is a lovely 1950s era dress, wonderful print!
