True Vintage 1950s Dress


Fabulous vintage 1950s dress, label reads ‘Foreign’ made.

It is fashioned in cotton material which has a subtle embossed design with eye- catching and unusual ‘spots and gingham’ print. 

It still has its original tie waist and large pocket at skirt. 

Fitted bodice with full skirt flaring from pleats from waist. 

Fastens with metal side zip.


This dress is in good condition. Small darning patch by pocket (see photo, nicely done) and very mild discolouration by arms (barely noticeable). 




I would estimate this dress to best fit a modern UK8- 10 but please look at measurements below:


Pit to Pit- 18.25”


Waist (measured flat)- 14”


Shoulder to Waist- 15.5”


Waist to Hem- 23” (with at least 1.5” hem allowance)


Hips (measured flat)- free
