The quintessential femme fatale dress, straight out of a film noir! I love the flirty side sash and the criss cross metal embroidery on the bodice.

Pit to pit 17” (34” around)

True waist 13.25” across (26.5” around)

Drop waist 14.5” across (29” around)

Hip 18” across (36” around)

Shoulder to hem 46”

Armscye 9” flat (18” around)

Hanging sash 20.5” (at longest length)

Label: Roberta Ettes (?)

Condition: Excellent vintage condition and very wearable, although care must be taken that the metal embroidery does not snag.

Metal embroidery has come undone a bit at both underarms, the left side has been tacked down and secured but I did notice that the right side will need a few stitches as well. Not very noticeable and the dress presents beautifully.

No other prominent staining or large tears. The hem was resewn by us and the two button loops at back of neck need some reinforcement or replacing as they look to be a little delicate (although they held up when I tried this dress on). Dress closes with two buttons at back of neck and side zip.

Please ask any questions you have on fit or condition and for additional photos if you would like to see more details, as I have a strict no return policy.
