Original 1940s 40s Vintage Navy Blue And White Gingham Check Cotton Day Dress With Peplum
This wonderful summer dress was made from cotton with a navy blue check on a white background in the 1940s. A notch lapel with wing collar highlights the summery v-neckline. A single line of eight fabric covered button extend down to the hip on an arrow shaped placket. Clever darting creates a beautifully fitted waist and mirrors the pleats of the peplum. The dress features a huge pleated peplum giving a double skirt effect. The dress closes with a long back zipper, which extends down from the neckline to the upper hip, giving easy step in access. The elbow length sleeves are adorned with a turnup cuff together with a decorative fabric covered button. Inside, the dress is unlined and without maker’s labels.
Bust: 36” (tight 38”)
Length: 41 1/2” plus 1/2” hem
The dress is in good condition throughout, although it should be noted that the zipper is missing a tooth, which does not affect the zipper’s functionality.
