Gorgeous Original 1940s Vintage Sky Blue And Pink Magnolia Flower Print Day Dress
This stunning dress was made in the 1940s from sky blue cold rayon with a vibrant magnolia blossom print in shades of pink and purple. The dress was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The small collar and V neckline lead to a single row of three buttons that fasten the dress at the bodice and turn up cuffs finish off the shirt sleeves beautifully. There is an original metal side zipper on the left and a practical pocket hidden in the right hand side seam. Large inverted pleats give wonderful movement to the garment and the original belt loops are still present if you wish to add a belt.
Length: 41 1/2”
The dress is in good condition with only a few minor flaws as pictured. The original belt is no longer present.
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.
