Smart 1940s Soft Raspberry Red Wool Day Dress with Puffed Sleeves and Pintucked Skirt
This vintage early 1940s dress absolutely charms me. Would I hoard this in my size? Absolutely. The silhouette starts with lightly padded shoulders and slightly puffed short sleeves. The fabric of the sleeves is cut on the bias, which helps with the fit for modern arms! The neckline is high and simple above glossy black buttons. The tiny pockets at the chest have four little fins of plaid wool inset - it's a really create and unique accent.the skirt is both gored and pintucked, withthe seams alternating with tucks. I love the body it gives the piece. This closes on the side with a sturdy metal zipper.
*for some reason, the hem looks uneven on the form - I think I got the skirt a bit twisted. it is 42.25" all the way around.
Label: None Present
Condition: Good to good plus, as is
This dress is clean and ready to wear. There are some fantastically well repaired moth chews in the skirt. The color is very slightly inconsistent - you really have to look, and there is a spot of subtle color transfer on the at the back left shoulder. I thought I'd seen one in the skirt also, but I'm totally unable to find it now. This dress wears beautifully - a gorgeous piece.
