Dress is a Rock Follies Vintage Size: 6 - 8 please note although the measurements are more like a 10 the dress has to go on over the head as like many of these antique dresses there are not opening (zips or poppers) so it probably was tied with a ribbon around the waist to get the fit once it was on or worn loose, to achieve a relaxed look even though the original wearer would have worn some sort of corset restrictor. The original belt is no longer with the dress so I have included a length of vintage lace to use as a belt.
Please check our size guide for how to take your measurements.
