Fabulous Original Vintage 1940s 40s White Spotted Lawn Cotton Maxi Dress
This fabulous dress was made in the early 1940s from a slightly sheer lawn cotton with a delicate Swiss dot pattern. It is cut in a classic early 1940s silhouette with short puff sleeves and a nipped waist. The sweetheart neckline has been decorated with a ruffled crochet trim, which was also used to finish off the sleeves and as three decorative bows at the front of the bodice. Two triangular panels at the hip add delicate pleating which gives beautiful movement to the full skirt. The dress fastens with poppers at the side of the bodice. This dress would be stunning worn to a summer garden party or even as a wedding dress!
Length: 55 1/2”
The dress is in good condition, however there are some small marks and a couple of small tears as pictured. A small area of the waist seam needs restitching and the trim on one of the sleeves would benefit from a few stitches.
