Smart 1940s Wool Plaid Day Dress by June Bentley Juniors


  • Product Description

      Terribly adorable vintage early 1940s wool day dress. Ivory, red, green, black green and yellow are used in a most classic tartain, all in a crisp wool. This dress features a fitted waist and bloused shirtwaist bodice.  Padded shoulders frame your shape perfectly. The loops on the waist are thick, very stylized. The silhouette of the A line skirt is accented by the gathere of the plaid and deep center box pleats. The loops on the waist are thick, very stylized. This charming number closes with a side metal zipper and buttons up the bodice.


      Shoulders: 15.5
      Bust: 39"
      Waist: 25"
      Hips: 48"
      Length: 42.5"

      Label: Original June Bentley Juniors
      Material: Wool
      Condition: Good, as is

      This dress has been dry cleaned and very carefully handwashed and is ready to wear. There is some some yellowing and felting to the underarms. There are scattered moth chews and thin spots on the skirt, all several inches above the hem. I have darned and reinforced them. These don't stand out at all because of the busy plaid, and have been accounted for in the price.
