Made in the 1940's or early 1950's, this piece is made from very lightweight black cotton which has woven stripes in red, yellow, blue, white and green.
A button though design with small black glass buttons, it has two large patch pockets, a neat collar and little turn-up cuffs.
Would look great cinched in with a belt.
Please note the cotton is fine and when held up to the light it is semi sheer so you'd benefit from wearing a slip in intending to wear it in winter.
Flat bust 20"
Flat waist 16.5"
Flat hip 24"
Shoulders between sleeves 14.5"
Back neck to waist 15"
Underarm sleeve 3"
Flat cuff 7"
Good with some points to note;
- faint pinhead spot on the back right shoulder - see photo
- belt loops but no belt
- wear under the bottom two buttons - covered when the dress is fastened
- the hem has been dropped and there is a very faint crease
- main issue is there is some thinning on the left pocket, near the waist - see photo. It is thin and the weave of the check has worn nearly off but it isn't actually a hole
