1940s sage green and white crepe dress.
This is a fabulous dress which is designed to look like a suit. Made from floppy crepe in a dull sage green/grey, it has a white spotty skirt and a flower and leaf design on the jacket. Button front with a hook and eye at the waist, there is a little zip in the front of the skirt which is covered by the "jacket" front which makes it easier to get into. Three quarter length sleeves and shoulder pads give it a great shape and it still has the original belt.
Flat bust 23"
Flat waist 19""
Flat hip 23"
Neck to waist 16"
Neck to hem 45.5"
Shoulders between sleeves 16"
Underarm sleeve length 10"
Very good. Only three minor points to note;
- a faint mark on the skirt
- a tiny mark on the bodice near the buttons
- a small mark on the bodice
- someone needed the belt to be smaller and so has made their own hole
The marks may come out with a clean.
