This amazing dress was made from navy blue crepe in the 1940s. The dress was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The high collarless neckline features a sultry cut out detail at the bust.  The quality of the craftsmanship and tailoring is simply incredible. There are rows upon rows of wonderful pin tuck detailing which decorate the bodice of the dress with narrower rows drawing the eye to the strong shoulder line. There is a long peplum below the fitted waist, which was adorned with matching pin tuck detailing and runs around to the back of the dress where it terminates at the stunning bustle back. Dozens of pleats create this flattering bustle and give lovely movement to the skirt. A long metal back zipper fastens the dress and allows for step in access. 

Bust: 32”

Waist: 24”

Hips: 34”

Length: 46 1/2” plus 2 1/2” hem

 

The dress is in good condition, however there are some faint marks as pictured but they are less noticeable in real life than under strong photography lighting. There are also a few tiny pinholes.

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 pure white cotton.

 

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.
