Product Description

This is one fun Summer dress, nautical style! Love it so much, it was used in our recent fashion show that had a Catalina Island Excursion theme (see photos). A wonderful swing dancing dress as well! Possibly late 40's, although I'd say it's more of an early 50's style overall with the full circle skirt. Skirt is double layered, starting with a satin-like rayon silk, with a very fine sheer layer over it. Metal MERITA zipper down the left side, starts an inch down. Add a crinoline or petticaot fro extra fullness!

Condition is very good. No holes or stains, though could use a cleaning for some general dinginess.

Check measurements carefully. Period correct fitting is acheived with proper undergarments to cinch the waist. Roughly a modern size 3.

A NOTE to REMEMBER: A kind word about vintage items in general - they are often One of a Kind and unique items, symbols of more stylish times.... That is what makes them so much fun! But also they should be treated with respect and preservation...cause they are disappearing fast. With that said, Please keep in mind that they are just that - vintage - and unless indicated otherwise, they have an unknown history. Therefore, please don't anticipate that they will look like new unless that is specifically stated. They will likely show previous use, wear, possibly loose threads, small marks, spots etc. that is acceptable to most lovers and buyers of vintage items and are not considered flaws, but character!
I will do my best to point out any flaws and state the condition issues as thoroughly as necessary, you can be sure. Please see my long history of Ebay feedback to rest assured you will be put first!

Please also remember that pictures give a good likeness of an item, but due to differences in monitor displays and lighting variations, etc. they are not exact and some colors may appear more or less accurate. I try to provide the best quality of pictures I can but simply cannot be responsible for these differences in appearance.
