This absolutely stunning dress was made in the 1940's.
Made from cold rayon in a soft green it has a white and black print depicting flowers and spiderwebs! The bodice is meant to be worn blousey and it has a neat little collar with a hook fastening in the back. The skirt is simple in design and swishes as you walk.
The dress is so much better in person than in the photos.
This is a petite fitting piece suitable for the shorter lady - there is no hem allowance to let down and the shoulder to waist measurement is short so please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own to ensure that this will fit you.
Flat bust 18"
Flat waist 13.5"
Flat hip 18"
Sleeve opening 6.5" flat
Shoulder to waist 14.5"
Very good with some minor points to note;
- minor discolouration on the inner collar - not seen when worn
- when held up to the light there are some small pinholes and a 1cm cluster of pinholes on the skirt
Has been washed, pressed and is ready to wear.
