1970s ‘Candy Jr’ corset front day dress with Juliet sleeves
Very cute, I think this is a larger teen dress but decent sized with bust darts and therefore suitable for a petite adult (height wise!) or wear as tunic, as I did!
Labelled ‘Candy jr’s’, it is a semi opaque poly cotton printed with flowers. Lined in rayon acetate.
Mock corset front over dotted Swiss, which is also used for the Juliet type elasticated lower puffed sleeves.
Fastens to the rear with a central nylon zipper.
Measures: bust 36” with darts
waist 30 but best for 29
shoulder to hem 35”
Condition: good, I’ve not used a photo filter but there’s a little bit of wash fade to the printed layer. It’s barely noticeable but I think it’s there. The lining is still very dark blue but there’s a slight bit of dye breakdown. Not unless you stare though.
Otherwise clean and ready to wear.
