Vintage 1940s day dress in a silky rayon jersey is marvelous palette of bold color, pairing fuchsia with three shades of yelllow - marigold, sunshine and chartruese. Black gives the oversized floral pattern detail and depth. A flattering war era length and cut, it features all the details you've come to expect. The bodice is perfectly flattering, a surplice style above a wide midwaist. There is shirring at each shoulder. The short sleeves have small pads for a tiny puff. The skirt has pintucks that mimic the look of gores. It closes with side buttons.
Shoulders: 14.5" -15"
Bust: 37" relaxed to - 40" stretched
Label: None Present
Material: Rayon Jersey
Condition: Good minus, as is, very wearable
This dress is clean and ready to wear. There is some color bleed on the right front chest, and multiple tiny pinholes along the neckline from being worn pinned closed regularly. A previous owner has used selvage to patch and reinforced damage at both underarms. Held to the light, I found five tiny pinholes in the skirt. It's not perfect, but it is in fairly standard condition for rayon jersey, and will have lots of years left for you. It has been priced with flaws/repairs in mind.
