Vintage 1960s ladies dress size 12 UNUSED crimped polyester Caprice SHOP SOILED
Ladies' sand-coloured pinafore dress, made in the 1960s, but never used. Caprice brand. Button front. Sleeveless. Unlined. V neck. Two large front pockets. The label says "crimped polyester" - this is very like Crimplene, but there is no Crimplene brand label. This dress was unsold shop stock from the 1960s, and has never been worn, but is shop soiled.
Size.....UK size 12 approximately. The sewn-in label says:.. Hips 38" ...96 cm.The hand-written shop label, which appears to be WRONG, says:....... Size 16......Hips 40". This shop label was clearly added in the 1970s (as it has a decimal price), and I think it must have been a mistake.
The actual measurements of the dress are...Bust 37"...Waist 34"...Hips 39"...Length 39"....Shoulder to shoulder 14".
Condition...SHOP SOILED. New and unused, around half a century old. The dress is in good general condition, but has some grubby marks from storage. They are shown in the close-up photographs. I do not know whether these will come out in the wash. One of the buttons is missing. The gold colouring on the buttons has tarnished a little in storage, and you will doubtless wish to replace the buttons. In view of its age, the garment should be washed before use, and treated more gently than if it were recently made.
