1950s Folklore Peasant Dress with Huge Poet Sleeves and Figural Novelty Print | Vintage Festival Folk Dress

One of thee best Folklore Peasant dresses around! I'm dating it to the late 40s/early 50's. Amazing novelty figural print. The sleeves alone are epic!

*Amazing print in dark pink, mustard yellow and black.
*Novelty figural print looks like Beefeaters and birds, zoom in.
*Wide scoop neckline with rickrack trim.
*Huge gathered sleeves with gathers at the cuffs and edged with rickrack.
*Tiny gathers at the skirt, the skirt is full.
*Full skirt with rickrack trim.

The dress is unlined and closes with buttons in the back.

The listing is for the dress only and does not include the necklace or the belts.  The last two images show the dress without a belt.

Condition: Fade down front of bodice, see last image. The sleeves are very loosely fitted at the ends. I don't believe them to be elasticized, but the fabric/cording in the interior makes a rather large opening, meaning the sleeve endings do not fit tight around the lower arm, they hang really loose.

Measurements:
Bust 38"
Waist 28"
Hips Free 
Length 43"
Sleeve cuff circumference 14" (7" doubled) The cuffs are not tight at all. They hang very loose even though they are gathered with cording in the interior. They are not stretchy.
