        because of the bias cut nature of the fabric, this dress could fit a range of sizes with different draping outcomes:

        bust-36-38" (maybe a bit more if needed due to the armholes and pleating), waist-to 32" (belt meant to cinch to size), hips-to 44"(maybe a bit more; ask for clarification if needed prior to purchase), shoulders-15.5", length-48"


        very good but "as is" due to the following --there is a small mar on the left of the bodice that's not yet a hole but should be patched from the inside before it becomes one), the trim has pretty consistent fading which is common from this fabric from that era (all part of the history), and it has been professionally dry cleaned but there may be some lingering odors from being stored next to other clothing for decades. price significantly adjusted accordingly.
