Measurements: bust: 36″; waist: 27″ (no give); hips: 38″; 43″ long.
Best fits size small.

Condition: excellent vintage condition. structurally sound and very wearable. Has two small spots of discoloration, one at the bust smaller than pencil eraser sized and a few small spots at inside of the collar, at the back. Both could potentially come out with second stain treatment.

My measurements are 37-28-38 and I wear a modern size 4-6.

Measurements are taken while laying flat, across and doubled. Measurements are taken from the outside of clothing, so keep that in mind when sizing. We do have cats and dogs in our household and try to keep them separated from any clothing items, however be aware that there may be pet dander present and you may need to wash items again if you have issues with allergies. All flaws are mentioned in the listing, as we see them. If a flaw slips past, we apologize. If no tags or information present, materials are best guesses. Remember that small imperfections and signs of wear or age almost always are to be expected with pre-owned items, even if they wouldn’t have any specific flaws. But this is what gives them all the individuality and history!
