Darling vintage 1950s classic fit and flare style dress in blue, purple and green modern leaf chiffon print overlay on a mauve satin base. Dress has a scooped neckline, fitted bodice with sweet spaghetti straps, and the original belt. Centre back metal zipper with a hook.

Dress is shown on a modern size 6 -8 mannequin.

She is not perfect but definitely still a show stopper! There is a wear or tear in the chiffon. I honestly have a hard time finding if every time I want to reference it but it is there. It lays discretely behind a natural fold on the left side of the dress. I have dedicated the last four photos so you can get a good sense of it. The first photo I am spreading the skirt with my hand under the skirt so you get the general idea. The second photo I have my hand under it to create contrast and spread it apart in order for you to see the fray/wear. The 3rd photo I tried to show you what it looks like on the fold. And the last photo shows how it is almost invisible when it falls naturally on the skirt, it is very hard to see. I have not doctored it anyway. You could have it invisibly mended but I think it would make it more noticeable, it is really very discrete. 

Measurements: please allow a little extra room for comfortable fit and ease of movement. Item is laid flat, measurements are taken and then doubled for bust and waist.
