A wonderful example of Horrockses designs of the 1950’s. This dress is a sea green cotton with a black floral design and a slight sheen to the fabric, the colours are vibrant and in great condition. The buttons are in black and could be moved to make the waist larger if required. The measurements are taken as the dress is and they are as follows –
Chest 38 inches (97 cms) the style of the bust is pleated and therefore has room to expand.
Waist 26 inches (67 cms) as stated this could be made larger and probably was larger originally.
Nape to Waist 17 inches (44 cms)
Nape to Hem 46 inches (117 cms)
