this wonderful dress was made in the 1940s from soft baby pink gabardine. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The super sharp dagger collar leads to a row of three rose buttons that fasten the dress and the centre seam continues to run down the length of the piece. Matching rose buttons also adorn the cuffs of the sleeves which gently flare in a bishop sleeve style. Patch pockets add a lovely detail at the bust and functional hip pockets bring a practical element. The dress is blousy at the back of the bodice and there are belt loops should you wish to add a belt. Inside, there is a maker’s label for Marilyn Classics of California. 

Bust: 42”

Waist: 29”

Hips: 45”

Length: 46” plus 1” hem

 

The dress is in good condition, however there are a few small marks and some slight underarm discolouration 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 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.
