Original 1940s 40s Vintage Green And White Striped Rayon Dress With Bishop Sleeves
This stunning dress was made in the early 1940s from green and white striped slippery rayon. The tops of the sleeves are slightly gathered to add that little puff that is common for pieces from the early 40s. The sleeves then billow out into fabulous bishop sleeves with fitted cuffs secured with clear glass buttons. The high neckline has an integral tie and leads to six fabric covered buttons which fasten the dress at the bust. Lovely shirring to the sides of the dress just below the nipped waist adds movement to the flared skirt abs there is a contrasting panel of horizontal stripes near the hem for added interest. The dress fastens with an original metal side zipper and is without maker’s labels.
Length: 42” plus 3” hem
The dress is in very good condition with only a couple of tiny marks as pictured.
