Rather good, this was worn as a maternity dressing gown; as you can see the belt can be worn in a number of ways depending on if you need it to be smock like, or fitted.

In a nice crisp cotton, with a pale pink stripe and cerise polka dots. 3/4 length sleeves with rever cuffs and big patch pockets.

I replaced the buttons (as the originals had been removed) with some old stock 40s ones. There is a small tear in the front later behind one of the buttons, where the hasty removal caused damage I guess.. it's hidden now but have photographed it for you.

Measures: Labelled a 36, it is a smock style unless belted so fairly capacious in bust and below.

Bust max 44" flat

Underarm to cuff 9"

Waist max 60"

Hips max 70"

Shoulder to hem 53"  - I think the hem has been let down and I have left it dropped in case you wanted it longer, there's a small machined hem at the very bottom so it's not a raw edge.

Condition: Clean and ready to wear - I've photographed any flaws.

Old owners name in neckline from maternity hospital (purchased from her lovely daughter!)

- Buttons are replacements and tear behind as mentioned (unseen)

- small hand-done repairs corners of rever cuffs

- small repair machined edge of one pocket
