Dance the night away in this fabulous vintage polka dot dress! It even comes with the original matching petticoat!
The dress was made in the USA by "Stop Staring" during the 1990s. There is no size indicated, but it would best fit modern women's sizes 6-8. Please see measurements below to guarantee fit.
The classic 1950s silhouette has been desired for decades! This dress is an example of the 1990s replicating the iconic 1950s A-line cocktail dress. The fabric is a lightweight man made material with a small amount of stretch to it. The bodice of the dress is lined for comfort. The neckline has a fabric fold with black piping trim that draws attention up toward the face. The black bows and belt add a nice black constrast against the all-over polka dot print. The skirt is a full circle which shows off movemement and looks great dancing. The belt is meant to be worn at the natural waist and best fits waist sizes 24-28. The back of the dress zips closed with a 13 inch zipper.
The dress also comes with a handmade petticoat that was made specifically to be worn under this dress to add extra volume in the skirt. The petticoat is made from a peach colored stretchy nylon fabric and black tule mesh. There are some pen marks on the nylon section from the seamstress, but they would never be noticed underneatht he dress.
Both garments were recently dry cleaned, however you will notice a few areas of discoloration on the dress. There are some slight stains on the lower back and underarms. They are not super noticeable (see photo close ups) and could easily be covered up with a cardigan for every day wear. This set would also make a great costume for theatre, film, a photo shoot, or Halloween! These minor condition issues have been reflected in the price. Over all this dress and petticoat are in good vintage condition and have a lot of life left in them! There are no holes, piling, or broken hardware, and they were stored in a smoke-free environment.
