Adorable novelty print cotton sundress from the 1950's!
- has a side metal zipper and full skirt.
- shown with a petticoat underneath to add fullness (petticoat is not included).
- gray with pink, yellow, and white.
- there is (plastic?) boning inside of the bodice to add shape.
- the novelty print looks like tennis or badminton rackets, but it's somewhat abstract so really, it could be anything :)
Condition: very good - a little faded overall - one of the shoulder straps is missing a stitch in the center to join them together
Label: no labels, likely a handmade piece
Size: estimating this to fit like an XXS/XS as my mannequin is a size small (US 4 with a 34B chest) and it won't zip up
Underarm to underarm (bust): 14.5" (29" doubled)
Top of shoulder strap to waist (bodice): 15.5"
Across waist: 12" (24" doubled)
Across hips: 31" (62" doubled)
Total length, top of shoulder strap to bottom hem: 39"
Waist to bottom hem: 23"

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
All of the listings have measurements included. Not every item has an exact size listed because often vintage items are missing size tags and vintage sizing greatly varies from modern sizing. Measurements are the way to go!
Measurements are taken with the item laying flat and are doubled where applicable. The "estimated size" is just an estimate, and vintage sizing is different than modern sizing. Please use measurements to ensure proper fit. Remember - the measurements are of the item, not of you. Leave some room for a comfortable fit. Compare the measurements to a similar item you own. This is the easiest way to be sure it will fit you well.
All measurements are in inches.
Vintage items should be handled with care. Please do not wash delicate items in a washing machine or dry in a dryer.
Hand washing in cold water, dry cleaning, and professional leather/fur cleaning are recommended.
My home is completely smoke free but we do have a dog and cats.

I'm a work from home mama also chasing after a toddler so I usually ship 2x a week. If you need your order ASAP, please send me a message and I'll let you know when I can get it shipped! Small businesses are not Amazon Prime ;) Thank you very much for your patience !
I'm happy to reserve an item for serious, committed buyers. Items can be placed on reserve for 24 hours. If you need additional time, a 10% non-refundable deposit needs to be made for the desired item.
If you need something ASAP, let me know before you place your order. Express shipping is available for an added fee. Just send us a message telling us which item(s) you want, your zip code (or country if international), and when you need them by. We will get back to you with a shipping price and estimated delivery date.
You will need to pay for the additional shipping fee before I can send your order out.
Unfortunately, no. All clothing & shoe items are vintage and therefore we usually have just one of each.
Measurements are generally included in shoe listings to help you get a better idea of how the shoe fits. I wear a US size 9 so I cannot try on any other sizes to confirm if they fit true to size.
If all else fails, rest assured that I do accept returns if something doesn't fit! Just see the return policy prior to ordering so you are familiar with the process.
