Nat Kaplan mum-print dress
Mid-century pleaser. Pour your curves into this pretty posy of a sundress. Snow-white, soft-pink, rose-red. Criss-cross braid trim kicks some extra va-voom to the cleavage. Princess seams, sharply-fitted -- scoop neckline -- gusseted, dolman, cap sleeves -- sweet chrysanthemum-printed cotton -- wide knife pleats. Full full skirt. Back metal zipper. By Nate Kaplan of New York.
size & fit- small
shoulders (seam-to-seam): 15 3/4" (or 17 3/4")
sleeve-length: 2 1/2"
bust/chest: 37" (or 39")
bodice (shoulder-to-waist): 15"
Highly-wearable & in beautiful shape. No exterior holes, stains or fading. Crinoline under dress in some images.
Noted repair: 1/4"x1/8" hole at underarm gusset seam has been repaired.
Noted alteration: princess seams have been skillfully added to the back bodice -- these may be opened/removed to add 2" to shoulder & bust measurements. A 2" square of fabric has been removed from the collar-facing -- probably used to repair the neck braiding -- this doesn't affect exterior.
