This is a very beautiful long vintage 100% cotton Ralph Lauren dress with spaghetti straps, a slightly V-d neck line, fitted bodice, shirring or gathers just below the waistline of the bodice and a very long, full skirt.
It can be worn as a sun dress, garden party, evening or summer dress. In other words, for any and all occasions.
It is not lined. There is a zipper at the side of the bodice. The length of the spaghetti straps can be adjusted to a degree. As depicted in one of the photographs, there is a belt loop at each side of the waist, but no belt came with the dress.
NOTE: I have photographed the dress in some instances with a sash or obi to give you an idea of how the look of the dress could be complemented. The sash or obi is not part of the listing.
What this dress most reminds me of is the dress ballerinas wore, when I was a little girl, to dance "Swan Lake." It is that ample, fluid and graceful.
Besides the material's texture and drape, the other standout feature is the garment's color. It is hard to describe, but I would say that any of the following descriptive words or phrases would be apt: peach, nectarine, light coral, orange creamsicle, mango, canteloupe, apricot, soft orange or pale tangerine. Take your pick. The color is an exquisite pastel.
Length from top of Strap to bottom hem: 50 inches
Length of full skirt: 32 inches
Width one-way across the waist: 12 inches
(There is really no stretch here.)
Width one-way across bottom hem (with skirt spread out at its widest): approx. 79 inches
