Vintage items rarely conform to modern day sizings and the UK size we give is only a guide. You are advised to check the measurements carefully to ensure a good fit.


bust: 34"

waist: 32"

hips: free

length: 54"

Approximately UK size: 12/14 but please check measurements

1940s / CONDITION: Very good - there are some small holes about the dress which need very close scrutiny when worn, and three small holes in the embroidered part above the hem which are lost in the design and folds of fabric. These are to be expected in a dress of this age.

Please refer to our grading and sizing guides.
