ADORABLE VINTAGE '60s CALYPSO DRESS
A very cute summer dress adorned with figures of calypso players scattered over the dress in shades of Vanilla and Brown Sugar Bruele .
I purchased this dress from an antique mall where I fell in love with it and planned on wearing it on a cruise to Jamaica. I had made reservations for a Calypso Train Excursion but a hurricane devastated Jamaica and my plans were changed drastically by this and we ended up going to different islands all together and I never was able to wear the dress.
The calypso figures are in black and they are playing instruments and creating calypso music. There is black piping accenting the neckline, arm holes and waist. Shiny black buttons up the front of the bodice. Slimming princess seams in front. There is no tag for the fabric but it is a heavier type fabric. Vintage pinked seams.
Perfect for summer or a cruise to the Caribbean especially if you are going on the Calypso Train excursion!
By: No tag
Size: No tag so go by the measurements
Approximate Measurements – This means the measurements of the item listed – not of your own figure. You must be a few inches smaller than the measurements shown.
It just fit my model who is a size 6 and her measurements are:
Bust: 34.2 Inches Waist: 25.2 Inches Hips: 35.7 Inches.
Approximate Measurements of Actual Dress:
Length: 39 with a 1-5/8" hem if it needed to be let down a bit
Fabric: No tag but a heavier cotton or blend
Condition: Very good - it has been washed so there is some wear to the fabric - no holes or rips or hems out - dress is nearly 60 years old so that is not unexpected. Still very wearable and really cute for vacation!

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
