This stunning dress was made in the 1940s from black crepe. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The bodice is simply styled with a high neckline and three quarter sleeves, allowing the wonderful tiered pin tuck details on the skirt to truly shine. The dress fastens with an original metal side zipper and has a maker’s label for Aywan Originals.

 

Bust: 35”

Waist: 26”

Hips: 36”

Length: 43” plus 2” hem

 

The dress is in very good condition with only a few minor flaws 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.
