Beautiful floral dress from the 1940s.
Such a pretty piece which has a sweetheart neckline with net yoke detail. It has ruching on the patch pockets and around the neckline and the fabric has a lovely weight to it so the dress hangs nicely.
It is best suited for up to a 38-30-40 but to ensure it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar garment you already own;
Flat bust 20"
Flat waist 16"
Flat hip 22"
Shoulders between sleeves 14"
Underarm sleeve length 6"
Shoulder to waist 15"
Shoulder to hem 43"
Good with some points to note, all of which are reflected in the price;
- there is a patch repair on the right bodice front. It has been patched inside but the small holes are visible from the outside on close inspection
- there is some wear and colour change on the underarms
- the net has been replaced at some point
- there are 4 small darns in the skirt but they are lost within the print and only seen when the piece is held up to the light
Although it isn't perfect it is a beautiful dress which presents really well and has lots of life left in it. The issues are reflected in the price.
