Dress best fits a size 4 (photographed on a size 2 mannequin). Dress measures approximately 33-34" at bust, 25-26" at waist , 12" in arm length and 43-44" in overall length. Made in France. Excellent condition (some light breaks to lining at arms which is only visible when turning the dress inside out and a slight bit of wear on sleeve cuffs). Color is jet black - photos were lightened to show details.
