A beautiful original 1940s crepe dress in warm red and off-white polka dot.
Labelled "Model by Femine Fashions" and with the CC41 label, this is a divine dress. Fitted bodice with white glass buttons and button loops down the front beck, it has three quarter length sleeves with poppers and ruffles and the bodice is attached to a gathered skirt with a 1" ruffle at the top. Side opening is very small and has poppers.
I believe this was once a full length dress that has been shortened. The collar and bow appear to have been added on and the inner waist seam is messy.
This is a petite piece which doesn't have a large side opening and is best suited for up to a 34" bust. However, to ensure it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar item you already own'
Flat bust 17”
Flat waist 13.5”
Shoulders between sleeves 14.5”
Underarm sleeve length 10”
Flat cuff 4”
Shoulder to waist 17”
Shoulder to hem 44"
Very good with some minor points to note;
- there is a repair under the bow, only seen from the inside
- there is a 3mm darn on the left bodice beside the waist
- one tiny seam stress in a dart
