This amazing vintage piece was worn last by Megan Joy (American Idol) in the feature film "Writer's Cramp" and in her music video, "Rainclouds." A sheath dress with a full metal back zipper, it is in great vintage condition. Gorgeous cranberry color, and ooh! Those sparkles! What's your occasion? Prom? Wedding? Opera? Symphony? Ballet? Candlelight dinner on the roof? You'll be the only one in this dress, guaranteed! Think Marilyn... and smile. Gloves come with, if you want them.

onceuponathyme @tamzzina What would you like to know? It's a small - best for a size 4, I think. Megan is a 4 (bottom) 6/8 (bust) and it was about 2" too small in the bust for her. A true 4 should fit perfectly. I can give you flat measurements tomorrow, if you like. It's ca 1950's ... I can totally see Marilyn singing "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend" in this dress... :-) Here's a short clip from the movie where Megan is wearing this dress... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=534191609962062&set=vb.241226065925286&type=3&theater

onceuponathyme What size is your ribcage and bust? Send me your measurements and I'll do my best to match them to the dress... it's so hard, lying flat, you know. I have about 70 fabulous ballgowns from the 40's - 50's... and some more modern ones, as well. What's your occasion? :-D

tamzzina @onceuponathyme Hi thank you, I thought I responded to this - this is difficult for me, I am trying to stay private on Posh and communicate too. I will keep a watch on your dresses and see if I can find one that will work for what I need. I appreciate - best to you.

onceuponathyme @cpalmi01 Here's Megan in another of my dresses ... again, you can see the dress in action in the link I provided in the first comment. Actually, pretty much every dress you see in this seen is in my actual closet, and many of them are appearing here - or will be soon. I had around 50 evening gowns for this shoot that I'm now setting free...

birdynlucy I love these styles that so flatter the hourglass figure, though finding vintage dresses that fit has proven difficult for me :-/ broad shoulders, busty, tiny rib cage and waist with hips... 1940's dresses with a Dolman or kimono sleeve help with avoiding the should issue, often times I end up just having to make the stuff myself

onceuponathyme What are your measurements, Chelsea? I have a couple of hourglass things you may like that aren't yet listed.... My problem is HIPS - which is so often NOT a problem in vintage things - the New Look dresses are perfect for me. :-) @birdynlucy
