This beautiful dress was made in the 1940s from cotton blend printed with a cherry floral pattern in shades of dark and pale blue, pink and yellow on an off white background. The dress was cut in a classic shirtwaister style and buttons all the way down the length at the front. The sharp notched lapel collar adds a casual edge and darting nips in the waist for that classic hourglass silhouette. The skirt has pleating either side of the centre front, which allows it to fall with beautiful flare and movement and the sleeves have been finished off with turn up cuffs. 

Bust: 42”

Waist: 32”

Hips: free

Length: 43 1/2” plus 3” hem

 

The dress is in very good condition with only a few small frays and repairs as pictured.

This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.

 

They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in two different options:

 

1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight dresses, blazers and suits

or

2. White cotton muslin for lightweight summer dresses (so they don’t show through the fabric)

 

They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.

 

We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
