Made in Hong Kong in the mid-1960s, this dress is truly one-of-a-kind. The beading is in remarkably good condition; I can't find a single flaw. The beads are attached is using a lovely feather stitch. The dress is made of a lovely robin's egg blue chiffon material and hits just at the knee.
Considering this dress is over fifty years old, it is in excellent condition. It appears that the sleeves have been altered from their original width. No other alterations are apparent. The back of the dress is missing one eye from the hook-and-eye set that fastens right at the waist. The hip features a snap closure that is fully intact. The zipper is fully functional and in excellent condition. There is discoloration on the back of the dress near the waistline to the left of the zipper, clearly shown in the last photograph. If you would like the missing eye replaced, please send me a message and I will gladly repair it before sending the dress off.
The label denotes this dress as a size 6, but it is the equivalent of a modern size 2 being that the waist is 26".

HOW WE MEASURE ?
Circumference measurements are calculated by taking the flat measurement from the front side of the garment and multiplying by two. All other measurements are taken lying flat. Basically, if you want a flat measurement from a circumference measurement, divide it by two.
? Shoulder to shoulder: tip of shoulder seam (armscye) to tip of opposite shoulder seam.
? Chest: underarm to underam, doubled. Waist and hip are taken the same way.
? Sleeve length: top of armscye to sleeve hem.
? Total length (front): bottom of collar to hem laying flat, front side of garment facing up.
? Total length (back): bottom of collar to hem laying flat, back side of garment facing up.
HOW DO YOU KNOW THE EXACT YEAR A GARMENT WAS MANUFACTURED? ?
We use the RN number and a simple formula to calculate the year a piece was made. Take your RN number, subtract 13670 (the very first RN #), and divide the product by 2635 (the approximate number of RN numbers issued per year). Add your number to 1959 and vîola! The sum of 1959 and the product of the equation described above indicates the year a garment was manufactured.
