I'm not sure if this is vintage at all or some sort of modern formal dress - say for a traditional Indian wedding or ceremony. I bought it anyhow - just in case. It measures 38-33-42 with a little stretch. The waist is 15" down from the shoulder. The hips were measured about 7" down from the waist. The only closure is snaps on the left shoulder (in pictures). The sleeves also have four snap closures each. It has a small slit in the skirt only on the left side, and the back of the skirt is longer than the front. Most of the seams are not left "unbound" but they are not overlocked. (I am no seamstress and still learning correct terminology on sewing techniques, so please correct me on anything!) I believe it is rayon. (?) I think the back neckline was originally a small "v" because the panel that is now there is roughly sewn in. The first few pictures show the dress both clipped and unclipped on my extra small dress form. It looks like there may have been a tag at some point. Please let me know if any other measurements or pictures would be helpful! Thanks! P.S. Please excuse the dog hair and messy house...sigh, haha.
