Vintage 1960s dress size 12 UNUSED crimped polyester Caprice SHOP SOILED


A ladies' pinafore dress, made in the 1960, but never used.
Caprice brand
Button front
Sleeveless
Unlined
V neck
Two large front pockets
It is labelled as being made of "crimped polyester" - this is very like Crimplene, but there is no Crimplene brand label.
This blouse is unsold shop stock from a drapers' shop which has recently closed.
It has been properly stored, and is still in fairly good general condition, but unfortunately shop soiled (see details below).
 
Size: UK size 12 approximately.
 
The sewn-in label says:........... Hips 38" ..........96 cm
The hand-written shop label, which appears to be WRONG, says:....... Size 16......Hips 40"
This shop label was clearly added in the 1970s (as it has a decimal price), and I think it must have been a mistake.
The actual measurements of the dress are:
Bust 37"..............Waist 34".............Hips 39".........Length 39".............Shoulder to shoulder 14"
 
Colour:
  • Sand
Condition
SHOP SOILED.
New and unused, but around half a century old.
The dress is in good general condition, but has some grubby marks from storage.
They are shown in the close-up photographs.
I do not know whether these will come out in the wash.
One of the buttons is missing.
The gold colouring on the buttons has tarnished a little in storage, and you will doubtless wish to replace the buttons.
In view of its age, the garment should be washed before use, and treated more gently than if it were recently made.
