approx. modern size: xxsmall-xsmall

hips: slip, 38" skirt, 44"
bodice length (to top of peplum): 19 1/2"

semi-sheer silk crepe with a unique oversized floral print in mauve, orange, gold, and bronze. scalloped peplum at the low waist, bias cut skirt floats on air. with original full attached rosy pink slip. snaps up the left side.
condition: good for age and style. wearable with care (I say this for any piece of this material and age). scattered flaws include: small repairs to front and back bodice near neckline, neckline seam repaired, some wear to piping. wear to base of snap placket, at the top it appears someone opened the placket at the underarm for more ease when getting on and off. repair to back peplum. some scattered smaller holes in the back skirt go mostly unnoticed due to drape and slip. a light mark on skirt front. slip has some water marks etc. that do not show when worn. overall, as said, wearable, and no weakness/deterioration in the places often found with these dresses (shoulders, underarms, upper backs). I have not washed; slight, not unpleasant "dust" scent, otherwise no offensive stains, odors, soiling. wear as-is. store flat/folded (not hanging)
