The print of this 50s dress is just gorgeous! I can only describe it as a romantic fairytale motif with depictions of European castles, kings, queens and Cinderella-style carriages accented with hearts, flowers and butterflies. Dreamy!
The dress is a shirtwaist style with a pointed collar and black buttons with loops up the centre-front from the waist. It has set-in 3/4 length sleeves with angled cuffs, trimmed with black velour. The collar also has this trimming. The skirt is tea-length and gathered at the waist. 
Metal side zipper to close. Unlined. 

COLOUR: Red background with blue, black and pale yellow details

FABRIC: Soft, lightweight rayon-silk

LABEL: None

MEASUREMENTS:
✂--- Allow for some ease.
Bust: 42" (106.5cm)
Waist: 32" (81.5cm)
Sleeve: 17.5" (44.5cm)
Shoulder to shoulder: 17" (43cm) 
Waist to hem: 29" (73.5cm)
Shoulder to waist: 16" (40.5cm)

CONDITION: Fabric is damaged and shredding on shoulders. A 0.5cm hole on the side of the skirt. There is a hole at the 6th button up from the waist. The above two buttons are also straining the fabric. 
Maybe some savvy person out there has a plan for those shoulders to bring this dress back to life? Or maybe you just want to use the fabric? It's truly special.
