Fantastic Early 1940s Sage Green Two Piece Wool Dress Set with Fur Trimmed Jacket and Puff Sleeve Dress
Vintage 1940s dress set consists of a flattering and versatile dress and smart, tailored jacket. The sage green color is fantastic, prettier and more perfectly green than the photos. The dress alone is a fantastic look, simple, with a quintessential silhouette and ten-gore a-line skirt. The short sleeves have headers for that puffed silhouette. And my favorite detail is the darted neckline. The dress closes with a side metal zipper and another zipper at the back of the neck. The matching jacket has sturdy padded shoulders and full length sleeves. The fur was added in the era, but is perfectly it's time. The jacket is fully lined and ties at the center of the waist - a style I always love.

This set is clean and ready to wear. The set is freshly dry cleaned. I removed the fur for cleaning and then re-attached it. Because of this, I know there is a moth hole at the back of the neckline on the jacket, but it is fully covered with the collar. The jacket has a bit of pilling along the sides/underarms and by the pockets - I've used a sweater shaver to clean up the most notable bits. There's a couple faint spots on the back of the jacket that didn't come out with dry cleaning. On the dress, there's four moth chews with old repairs in the back and a tiny one in one of the gores at the front of the skirt. I find no other issues to note, it is sturdy and wears beautifully.
