This beautiful dress was made from heavy white chorewear cotton in the late 1920s / early 1930s. It was cut in the looser fitting silhouette of the period with a lowered waist seam and beautiful inverted pleats that shape the skirt and give it volume. The dress has a distinct sailor vibe with the navy blue trim adorning the hem as well as the bodice. The neckline falls as a flattering V at the front and a square sailor style at the back. This sleeveless dress would be perfect for a hot summer’s day. 

Bust: 38”

Waist: 36”

Hips: 44”

Length: 40 1/2”

 

The dress is in very good condition with only some very faint marks 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.
