This classic 1940's day dress is made from a very heavy weight sage green Moygashel which means it has great drape and is the perfect piece for the warmer months.
A home-sewn garment it features a button bodice, pleated skirt and neat little belt. The construction is a little quirky in places and I think they were trying to make the most of the fabric they had so some of the finishes are a little off. It has been made well and is a very sturdy but not made by a professional seamstress.
This piece has been home-sewn to the measurements of the original owner. It is narrower in the back than the front so will suit someone with a smaller back and bigger bust. To ensure it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own;
Flat bust 19" in the back and 24" in the front
Flat waist 13.5" in the back and 27" in the front
Shoulder to waist 16"
Shoulder to hem 44.5"
Underarm sleeve length 4"
Flat cuff 6"
Very good with a few of minor points to note;
- there are two marks on the skirt - the dress has been washed and the marks stayed - might lift with further treatment
- a darn on the waist, but this isn't seen as it is covered by the belt
- a darn on the left shoulder
- a couple of small spots of iron shine
- the most minor shoulder fade
