Gorgeous 1940s Rayon Jersey Day to Evening Dress in Autumnal Paisley Floral


  • Product Description

      Vintage 1940s day dress in a silky rayon jersey is rich and bold.  A flattering late war era length and cut, this fantastic frock is warm and autumnal in a paisley floral - blooms of rust orange and crimson with green and black paisley leaves on an ivory ground. The details in the print are fine and beautifully done. The neckline is a v, framed with draping created from shirring at the shoulders and pleats into the surplice waist detail. There is shirring at the center of the peaked waist that creates marvelous drape. The sleeves are three-quarter length.  This beauty closes with a side metal zipper. 


      Shoulders: 16"
      Bust: 35" to 37" 
      Waist: 24.5"-27.5"
      Hips: 41"
      Length: 42"

      Label: None Present
      Material: Rayon Jersey
      Condition: Good plus 

      This dress is clean and ready to wear. I managed to pop open the neckline about 1/2 putting the arms on the dress form, so that 1/2" is closed with a hand stitch. There are two tiny little holes in the right side of the waist that I have carefully darned. The upper back is very slightly yellowed, and there is mild fade the underarms. I find no other issues to note - this dress wears beautifully.
