Vintage 1960s / 1970s hand made maxi empire line evening dress in a gorgeous combination of cream lace bodice and moss green skirt with a sheen to it. Attractive narrow velvet black trim under the bust to highlight the empire line style of the dress culminating in a draping bow. The black velvet trim extends to the back of the bodice also.
The sleeves are full length and elasticated at the cuffs. Very fine delicate lace trim around the neckline (front and back) and edging the sleeve cuffs. Gentle scoop neckline at the front. Deep V at the back.Please note that only the bodice (front and back) is lined. Also, there is no stretch in the material. Chest measurement (underarm measurement): 44 inches maximum. Underbust measurement (3.5 inches below the underarm): 38 inches maximum. Waist (about 8 inches under the armpit): 36 inches maximum. 12 inches below the armpit: The material at the hips hangs down loosely at 34 inches but when spread out extends to approximately 42 inches. 16 inches below the armpit: 48 inches maximum. The skirt flares out considerably more lower down. Shoulder to hem: 53.5 inches. The dress would probably best fit a large busted size 16, a small waisted size 18 or maybe a very small waisted size 20. Please check your own measurements very carefully against those quoted above - adding a bit extra to your own measurements to allow for breathing and being comfortable!
