Vintage post war 1940s dress in a fantastic striped floral print. The rayon crepe has a wonderful weighty drape. This piece offers an ideal late war era silhouette, with high neckline, lightly padded shoulders and skirt with fullness from crisp pleats. rows of roses and rosebuds stripe the bodice and top of the hip horizontally, and run vertically down the pleats of the skirt. The bodice closes up the front with little glass buttons, and there is a metal side zipper. The matching belt is still present!
Condition: Good plus
This dress is clean and ready to wear. The underarm are gusseted, and there is strain to side corners of the gusset, with some old top stitched repairs. There is a little tanning through the white, or it may be from mild color transfer during a prior handwashing. I find no other issues to note!
