Vintage Starina 1930s Style Willow Green Print Garden Party Tea Dress - 90s does 30s Vintage - Quality Rayon Crepe

Sorry, this item has sold.

Beautiful vintage rayon crepe 1990's bias-cut dress with a definite feeling of the 1930's, this is such a charming dress for any summertime event--garden party, wedding, Art Deco party or the Gatsby Summer Afternoon! Gorgeous pastel willow green and white vintage-style print on lovely lightweight rayon crepe. Very easy fit since it's cut completely on the bias; this is meant for a little bit curvier figure than my mannequin---marked an L but I feel it fits smaller than that, more like an M/small M. Slips on over the head, has short sleeves and a flaring, twirly bias skirt. A very flattering fit and so summery and perfect!

IMPORTANT: PLEASE, please be sure to read ALL of the description especially the measurements and condition, and examine ALL the photos, BEFORE asking questions; and do be absolutely positive this piece will fit your requirements, as there are no refunds or returns. I'm a degreed and experienced textile scientist/antique garment restorer and seamstress, and I very, very carefully note any and all condition issues or repairs to every piece of antique/vintage clothing that I'm selling, so I can't stress enough that even if they're in pristine condition, remember they are all decades old and NOT new clothing, so if you desire modern perfection please don't purchase vintage! I don't do layaways or take offers, so please don't ask, thank you. Jewelry/accessories/props in photos are not included and not for sale.

I love antique and vintage clothing and have collected it for years, as well as having a longtime design career including doing costume & restoration work for major movie studios and museums....I've translated that love to my own contemporary creations as well as now offering some choice pieces of my extremely large collection of vintage and antique beauties! I'm meticulous about clothing in general so I make quite sure that every piece of vintage clothing I sell is clean, fresh, pressed and in excellent wearable condition---I do not use any fragranced or heavily-chemical products in caring for/cleaning garments and they are carefully stored in climate-controlled closets at all times except for when I am photographing them for listings. This is a NON SMOKING environment and always has been--I do not sell anything that has any kind of odor, nor do I ship clothing stuffed into shipping bags; I use new USPS boxes ONLY and carefully fold/wrap everything in new tissue paper.

Though marked a vintage L, please go by the measurements below as this is way more like an M or small medium in my opinion.
(This is entirely cut on the bias so the fabric is very "stretchy" and can accommodate a range of measurements. My mannequin is a little too thin for this particular dress and I feel it needs a bit more of a curvy figure to look best!) Wearer's actual body measurements should be at least 1-2" smaller than the max stated:
Bust: stretches to about 38-39"
Waist: stretches to 34" max
Hip: stretches to about 40"
Length is 50" from shoulder to hem, but will fit and hang properly/higher on a real human rather than this mannequin. Mannequin is approx. 5' 6" and a modern size 6; I feel this dress is most suited to about a size 8/10.
Condition: Vintage new, no issues whatsoever that I can see; clean, fresh and ready to wear. Pulls on over the head, no fasteners. Starina label.

Please make sure this will suit you as to measurements and style before you purchase; I don't do alterations or accept returns.....Also, please be sure to read my shop policies/shipping info in full before you purchase (click on "policies" on my main shop page).
