Original 1940s 40s Vintage Blue Novelty Print Rayon Dress With Matching Jacket
This gorgeous set was made from a wonderfully slippery blue rayon in the 1940s. It features a fabulous novelty print of Asian family scenes as well as cherry blossom and leaves. The dress is cut in a flattering longer length and boasts padded shoulders and a rounded neckline with a small V cut out. Short sleeves and a nipped waist finish the dress off in style. The dress closes with a side metal zipper and retains its original paper label. The matching jacket is cut in a classic 1940s hourglass silhouette with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. It features a small scalloped collar and small functional pockets at the waist. The shoulders have a slight gather and turn up cuffs finish off the three quarter length sleeves.
Length: 45 1/2” plus 1” hem
Shoulders: 15 1/2” seam to seam
The dress is in good condition, however there is a tiny mark and some puckering on the sleeve as pictured. Some repairs are needed to the underarms and there is also some fading and discolouration near the hem of the dress. This is not very noticeable when worn but could easily be remedied by taking up the hem a little. However the jacket has significant fade to the shoulders, sleeves, hem and side as well as some discolouration to the collar and some nibbles near the hem.
