Here's a fancy party dress from the 1950's for a young girl. Made of white nylon with rows and rows of lace ruffles, the dress is old store stock...never worn and still with labels and tags. Suitable for costuming or movie production.
Dress features a peter pan collar, short puff sleeves and buttoning down the back to the waist. Full skirt. Included with the dress, is a separate acetate fabric half petticoat, in an ivory white. It has an elastic waist band, which still feels stretchy. This same acetate fabric is used to line the chest area of the bodice. Then sewn into the side seams under the arm and gathered to the waistband. The waist band on the back of the dress also includes elastic. Again, the elastic feels stretchy. The bodice lining does not feature any shoulder straps. Tied in a bow around the waist, is a wide off white satin acetate ribbon. Decorated in front with a cluster of small fabric flowers. Dress is stuffed with factory tissue paper and cardboard for display in a store. Size tag is a 10. Hang tag of washable, needs no ironing, 100% Dupont Nylon.
Measurements: 33" long from the neck line to the hem. 13" across the shoulder, from one side to the other. Sleeve length is 5-1/2" long. 25" around the chest. 18" around the waist, as it is tied now. That size could be adjusted by the elastic.
Condition: Very nice from the stand point of no holes or tears that I noticed. There are rows of ruffles so may have missed something minor. As noted from photo some oxidation spots on the one sleeve. Definitely needs to be laundered if worn, as it shows more of an off white rather than white.
I suppose the size would fit a girl about 9 or 10 years of age.
