Vintage 1940s dress is perfectly charming in a rich, muted orange that can easily be worn spring to autumn. This lightweight beauty is a rare beast - you don't often see rayon burnout as it often did not survive the decades. The pattern is a curling floral. The front yoke is cape-like, and gathered under the squared neckline. Double darts fit the bodice, while the skirt is gored. This dress has a good weight, but the burn out is quite sheer. It slips over the head and has no closures except the hook at the back of the neck.
This dress measures as a medium, but with no darts and no side closure, it is intended to fit a small.
Label: None Present
Condition: Good, as is
This garment is clean and ready to wear. There are two little holes backed with self-fabric at the back of the neck. I have fushed a small pinhead sized hole at the mid back, and stitched another that is just above the waistband. I find nine tiny holes in the skirt - burn out is just delicate and can be prone to snag. It wears beautifully, but is priced with flaws in mine. I find no other issues to note!
