23 Skidoo Vintage

50’s Striped Fit and Flare Wool Dress$128.00

Size:
small - medium

Such a lovely dress for Autumn or any cool weather. Add a petticoat under the skirt for a dramatic hourglass silhouette! Pair with a hat and some gloves, and you will be the talk of the town!

Features:

-Blue velvet trim on collar and cuffs

-Side pleats in the skirt for a gorgeous fit and flare silhouette

-Side metal Crown zipper with snaps and hook and eye closure

-Beautiful symmetrical chevron stripes in front and on back of skirt

-Dolman sleeves

No fabric tag, but it definitely feels to me to be 100% wool. There is minimal stretch in the bust. Dress is NOT lined.

This dress is in very good to excellent vintage condition!!! I could find no major holes, tears or stains. It is about 70 years old, so there is some normal wear and tear. This includes some minor seam separation in a few places, mostly on the skirt. There are some small moth holes (I had to search to find them- the largest one is maybe the size of the head of a pin), and there have been minor repairs from the previous owner - the snaps were reattached, and a couple seams were hand repaired. None of these issues compromises the integrity or wearability of this dress, though! She is in very wearable condition, ready to go!

Please note measurements carefully - there is some stretch in the bust, and the dolman sleeves offer a little leeway for cup size. The waist, however, has no give whatsoever.

Measurements taken lying flat:

Bust: 38"
