Girls pinafore dress Vintage 1960s Striped wool UNUSED Age 10 years LADYBIRD


A child's vintage pinafore dress, made in the 1960s, but never used.
This garment is unsold shop stock from the 1960s, and it has been in storage at the shop for the last 50 years or so.
The original retail price is on the hand-written label: 49/11 (forty-nine shillings and elevenpence),
and on the other side of the label is the decimal price added in 1971 when England abandoned shillings in favour of "Pounds and New Pence" (£2.49 1/2)
Made in England for Ladybird, in the days when Ladybird was a "posh" brand, sold at independent drapers' rather than chain stores.
As you can tell from the price, and the photographs, this is a high quality garment - perhaps too expensive for the customer's of the draper's shop, which was unable to sell it.
It has been properly stored, and is in absolutely PERFECT condition.
There are no laundry labels in the garment, just the size label.
Dry clean only.
Half-lined.
This is a slip-over dress - the buttons and pockets at the front are purely decorative features.
Please note: this garment was made in the early 1960s - in the days before Britain joined the EU and adopted European clothing and labelling regulations; so it does not conform to modern standards of children's clothing.
 
Size:
The garment is marked to fit a girl a ge 10 (55 inches tall).
The actual chest measurement is 33".
The actual garment measurements are:
Chest 33" (underarm to underarm, measured flat is 16 1/2")
Length 28" (measured shoulder to hem).
