A vintage 1930s silk chiffon dress with a gathered bodice, high waist, long skirt, and a piece of fabric at the waist that is like a peplum if draped but will tie in the back. The dress has three back neck buttons with a keyhole opening beneath the buttons. The fabric is sheer enough that you will want to wear with a slip, and it feels like silk chiffon. Size: xs to small (shown unpinned on my 34-24-34 dress form) Bust: open (but won't work for larger than ~34" because the waist seam has to be pulled over the bust, and there are no side seam openings/fasteners. I was able to get the waist seam over the 34" bust of my dress form) Waist: 29" at narrowest point (which is a high waist--also, waist meant to cinch smaller) Hip: open Length: 52" Condition: Very good. There are some tiny holes in the chiffon--most are pinholes, and the largest near the hem is 2 mm. There are a handful near the hem, a couple mid skirt, a couple on the tie, and a handful on the back shoulder. Because of their small size and the gathered fabric, none are noticeable unless you are looking for them. See last pic for a few close up pics. Follow me on Instagram for shop previews: @bluefennel
