e r a : 1960s
f a b r i c : silk
c o l o r : deep salmon
f a s t e n e r s : zipper, button closures, tie
d e s i g n e r : unlabeled Norman Norell (mid 60s) - bought from an estate with several additional labeled and unlabeled Norell pieces. This particular piece is very similar to the one at the MET in black.
d e t a i l s : Beautifully made (like all iconic Norell's!) in a deep salmon luxurious silk fabric. This consists of two pieces - the dress that is sleeveless and features a dropped waistline, accordion pleating on the skirt and a zipper closure on the back. Matching top has button closures up the back, a long tie that snaps along the neck, pockets on the front and 3/4 sleeves.
c o n d i t i o n : Excellent overall condition.
s i z i n g : This would fit a modern small to smallish-medium.
m e a s u r e m e n t s (inches) :
length: dress: 40 (from shoulder to bottom hem) shirt: 21 (from shoulder to bottom hem)
bust: dress: 36 shirt: 39
waist: dress: 37 (dropped) shirt: 40
Thanks for looking!
NEED TO KNOW:
✦ MOST sales are considered final. Returns can be reviewed on a case-by-case basis if there is a significant error in the listing. Time is spent to give accurate measurements on each item, so I unfortunately can not offer returns for items that do not fit. TERRASITA also can not accept returns on undergarments, bathing-suits, or items from the 1920's or earlier due to their fragile nature. Additional absolutely no returns or exchanges on Layaway items.
✦ Vintage clothing is pre-worn and pre-loved and as a result some pieces may show signs of wear or use. I carefully inspect each item and disclose any signs of wear in our detailed descriptions.
✦ If you have any questions about fit, color, or need any additional photos, please don't hesitate to ask questions before you decide to purchase. I want you to be happy with your item!
✦ SIZING - Vintage clothing sizing does not reflect modern standards. When determining size, make sure you account for enough room to move comfortably. Additionally, vintage clothing is more fragile and should be worn with this in mind. Occasionally there are seam allowances or darts that can be removed, as well as tailors that can alter a vintage item to fit your particular shape.
When determining size I recommend measuring the following:
HIPS: measure around the fullest part of your hips.
BUST: measure over the fullest part of your bust while wearing a bra.
WAIST: measure around the smallest point of your natural waistline.
SHOULDER TO WAIST: measure from the very top of your shoulder - where the seam would lie, down the front, over the bust, to your waistline.
LENGTH: measure from the top of your shoulder, down the front, and to the point where the hem would be. Inseam measurements for pants would be measured from the inside of the leg at the very top of the groin, down to the hem.
✦ SHOE SIZING - I tale actual measurements inside the shoe from toe to heel, as well as width measurements inside the shoe as accurately as possible.
