This CC41 ditsy floral day dress is utterly charming and is an iconic piece of the 1940's.

Made from lightweight crepe it has the prettiest print in pink, purple, lavender and white on a black base.

The bodice has covered buttons, (which are decorative only - the bodice fastens with black poppers), a dropped yoke with piped edges, a neat little collar, covered buttons and teeny gathers. The sleeves have neat gathers and deep cuffs which are piped to match the dropped yoke. The skirt is skimming and very simple and there is a back belt which fastens with poppers.

 

Measurements

This piece is very small, especially across the shoulders, so please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own. It may originally have been made for a teen. A previous owner has tried to make getting into it a little easier by adding a small zip in the side.

Flat bust 16" across the back and 18" across the front where the gathers are

Flat waist 14"

Flat hip 17.5"

Shoulders between sleeves 11 1/2"

Underarm sleeve length 4"

Flat cuff 4 1/4"

Shoulder to waist 13.5"

Shoulder to hem 40"

 

 

Condition

This piece is a little wounded but still has lots of life left in it. Please read the following issues carefully to make sure you're happy with the condition of the piece.

- side zip has been put in a little messily and is stitched by hand

- there are a number of darns, most are lost within the print but are visible on close inspection - 6 in the back bodice, 2 in the yoke, three on the left sleeve, 2 on the right, one on the shoulder and 3 within the waist

- slight wear to collar

- a few pinholes when held up to the light
