Merivale Strapless Lace Dress With Circle Skirt - 1970s Does 1950s - Bust 86 cm
Strapless cream lace dress - 1970s does 1950s - from Australian designer Merivale Hemmes.
This dress has a full circle skirt, a stand up double ruffle around the underarm and has no boning in the bodice. Closes with a zipper in the back, is fully lined and is ankle length. Synthetic lace and rayon lining/underskirt. Tag says Merivale - by Merivale Hemmes, Australia.
Bust measures 84 cm (33"), but as it is strapless and there is no boning, it would need to be tight, so fits 86 cm (34")
Waist 66 cm (26")
Length from the side at the underarm is 106 cm (41.5"), plus a 3 cm (1") ruffle at the top.
Good. There are 4 holes in the lace at the bodice, not noticeable, see photos. Also, a repair to the underskirt at the hem, photo 9, and some small marks near the top of the zipper.
