Sophisticated 1940s Gabardine Day Dress in Muted Mustard Yellow


  • Product Description

      Vintage 1940s day dress in an absolutely marvelous quality gabardine. The shade is a warm, muted mustard hue. Those who have been following me for a while (or know me at all) know how much I adore a basic gabardine dress. It falls somewhere in the realm between a casual cotton dress and a smart suit - a versatile basic, but with bold details. Yes, please. This dress is no exception and eye catching bodice accents and matching turned cuffs. Hidden buttons close the dress down the front, and a deep center vent offers drape. There's a working hidden pocket at each hips, each with a single brass stud. There's loops for a belt, but no belt present.


      Shoulders: 15.75"
      Bust: 43"
      Waist: 32"
      Hips: 45"
      Length: 42"

      Label: Cay Artley
      Material: Rayon Gabardine
      Condition: Good plus

      This dress is clean and ready to wear. It has been work and sold by a previous collector - they professionally let out one set of darts on the bodice, and the skirt (its nicely done.) They've also added small bits of velcro in the hidden closures to keep it from gaping. There's a few little snags to the gabardine, nothing significant. This is soft and high quality and wears beautifully.
