Fantastic vintage pure silk high necked A-line maxi dress with neckline cut-out, by Colin Glascoe, London. The dress has been let out at the waist.If you look very closely, the original stitching holes can still be seen as per image #12, although these are likely to close when cleaned. The dress has some small flaws but these are not noticeable due to the busy pattern.
There is a small yellow mark of less than 1 cm as pictured in image #9. There is a very faint light brown spot about 1 cm diameter as pictured in image #10. There is a little colour loss near the seam to the right ribcage as pictured in image #11. However, if the dress was taken back in again to its original size, then much of this colour loss would become hidden inside the seam.Apart from the above, the dress is in perfect condition. Labelled a vintage 16, the bust measures as a modern size 14, and the waist as a modern 18. The bust has not been altered and probably cannot be, but the waist has been altered, but is easily reinstated to the original size.
Underarm to underarm 49 cm across / 98 cm circumference / 38.5. Waist 46 cm across / 92 cm circumference / 36. Hips 58 cm across / 116 cm circumference / 46.5. Shoulder to hem 138 cm.
