Vintage 80's does 50's shirtwaister dress by Hardob. Blue and white polka dot print with floral top half of the bodice. Fitted bodice with a collar. Working buttons to the front and a centre back zip. Belt loops but no belt! Size '44'. Bust- 38". Waist- 33". Hips- Free. Length from underarm- 35.5". I would recommend for a 14. The waist is generous but the zip and buttons do not open it further for putting the dress on and taking it off so you will need some wiggle room. I had to picture on a size 10 mannequin to fit the waist over the shoulders, though it then sits very loose. A human body should have more movement! Obviously a preloved item, and it has been well loved! There is a small faint stain on the collar, and two horizontal runs near the bottom button and one just under each arm to the back. The pulls are hard to spot due to them being white and the white polka dots. The lining has obvious discolouration around the neckline and under the arms. There is also some damage to the stitching by the bottom of the zip.
