An absolutely charming French cotton dress by J.Tiktiner in superb condition.
The Tiktiner label had its start in the late 1940s by Dina Tiktiner. The brand made beachwear and play outfits for the rich and famous and in the 1960's it was a favourite label of the "who's who" along the Côte d'Azur in France. This dress is made in France for Holt Renfrew and brought to Canada for sale where it was purchased by one of our Calgary VIP's, Marmie Hess, I think in the late 1950's or early 60's. It is beautifully made with lots of care given to all the details and there are lots of handwork finishing stitches.
There is no zipper, it buttons up the front and there is hook at the waist and a snap below the waistline as well. Pretty ruffle traces the neckline and there are pretty covered buttons down the front to the waist.

I have given the measurements below but also wanted to comment that there are two extra inches in the seam allowance and this dress can easily be let out to fit a 28" waist or even 29" as can the bust be increased to 35 or 36". The fabric is a medium weight cotton with a grape print on it and it has a slight sheen to the finish.

The dress has been cleaned and pressed and is ready to wear. The condition is remarkable for its age.

Bust: 34"
Waist: 26.5"
Shoulder to waist: 15.75"
Across the back shoulder: 15.75"
Waist to hem: 25" with a 2.25" hem turned up as well
Sweep of hem: 69"
