True Vintage 1950s French Dress

Featuring superb novelty print design.


A French vintage 1950s dress which had the most amazing print.

Painterly sky blue and green stripes with novelty illustrations.

This was handmade at the time and has fitted bodice, full skirt from plentiful gathers at waist and metal side zip.


It has been adapted at some point with fabric inserts under arms.

There is plenty of hem allowance if you desire a longer skirt or extra fabric to adapt the dress.

Shoulder straps also have an inch at each side if you require adjusting them.

Please view photos.




I estimate that this dress would best fit a Medium size, approx UK12.

Please check measurements given:


P- p 18.5”

Waist (measured flat) 15”

Shoulder to Waist 16.5”

Waist to Hem 23.5” with 3.5” hem allowance

Hips (measured flat) Free
