This is a beautiful vintage crocheted cotton sundress, in excellent condition. This sweet dress would look great as a beach cover or worn over jeans with a tank top or camisole under it. The size is open, it would fit most...a large small to large medium since it does stretch. The waist has a string tie which can be cinched or left loose. If you are interested in purchasing this item and need measurements, or any other questions answered, please feel free to contact me.

From shoulder to hem is 44 inches and the hem width is approx.67 inches around.

This Robe is just beautiful, I am having a hard time dating it though, the fabric seems like a silk or a rayon, it is really nice to touch. The floral design seems to be '60's flower power and yet I feel it is older than that and borders on art deco. So I can make no authentic claims as to it's age or fiber content, So I'll attest to it's beauty and character. The fabric in this piece is so pretty! (it feels like a lightweight silk curtain material) I originally bought it thinking I would cut it up and make something else but I am not strong enough to do that with out giving this sweet garment a fighting chance. So I'm trying to find a new home for her.
The robe has a small tear on one of the arms(ask to see pictures if you are interested in buying it) and other than that is in very good condition. This piece was hand made by a very skilled seamstress.

Garment size is open
