This beautiful dress was made in the 1940's.
Made from linen it has a pretty print featuring leaves and flowers in bright green and edged in chocolate brown.
A classic day dress is has a smooth fitting bodice with button front, neat sleeves with turn back cuffs, a smart collar and smooth fitting skirt.
I fastens down the left side with a nylon zip, which is a replacement, and has a tie belt.
A fabulous dress in a charming print.
This piece will best fit up to a 34/36-29-36 but to ensure that it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own;
Flat bust 19"
Flat waist 15"
Flat hip 18.5"
Shoulders between sleeves 14"
Underarm sleeve length 3"
Flat cuff 6"
Back neck to waist 15"
Back neck to hem 42.5" - no hem allowance
Good with some minor points to note;
- minor wear to the buttonholes and some hand stitching around them to secure them
- nylon zip - not really an issue but it isn't the original
- someone has reinforced the back skirt seam and a few of the stitches are visible from the outside, but it is a few and they are minor
- some underarm discolouration - slightly pink so guessing worn with a knit of some kind. Haven't tried to wash this one so the marks may come out but they are minor so if they don't the dress is still beautiful
