1940s Vintage Dress - Saturated 40s Rayon Jersey Day Dress in with Fuchsia and Purple Chrysanthemum Border Print
Vintage 1940s day dress in a rayon jersey border print. This bold motif of chrysanthemums is richer and more purple than it reads in these images - the petals are violet and fuchsia. The leaves are olive green,and the background is a warm grey hue. The massive flowers around the hem are 7" wide! The bodice is a surplice style, with snaps added for modesty. There is shirring at each side of the waist. The short sleeves have small pads for a tiny puff. Arcs of shirring at each hip create drape to the skirt. Closes on the side with a hidden button placket.
Label: None Present
Material: Rayon Jersey
Condition: Good minus, as is, very wearable
This dress has been dry cleaned and is ready to wear. There are three spots at the front right shoulder that didn't come out with the cleaner, and I try to avoid wet cleaning jersey. There are some slightly wonky repairs and patching at the corner of each underarm, but this isn't seen when worn. . As with much rayon jersey, it has acquire scattered little holes - about four in the skirt, mostly by the hem, and two in the right sleeve, one on the bodice. The dress has likely been washed in the past, but remains bright. There is some pulling from the snaps, nothing significant.
