  • Product Description

      Vintage 1940s dress set in a darling colorblock contrast of solid rayon crepe and cold rayon polka dots. The surplice top features panels of plain brown rayon down the front, finished with dart tucked shoulders and edged with forest green rayon trim. There are small headers in the sleeves. I simply adore the classic nature of this set, it comes from my personal collection and is a very hard thing to part with! The swishy skirt has long darts that open to pleats, and is flirty as can be, and closes with a series of hooks on the side.

      This set is clean and ready to wear. The underarms have old off seam repairs and some rippling from strain. There is a white spot on the bodice that I've covered with fabric dye pen - oddly, it still photographed white, and I can't explain it. It's much more subtle in person. There's one other speck of the white, on a white polka dot. The dots on the top aren't quite as bright as the dots on the skirt, I think from mild color transfer during a previous hand wash. On the skirt, one dart has two inches of stitching that is replaced by hand. There is a pinhole in the skirt, and one small stain at the lower left hem. This wears
