Original 1940s 40s Vintage Navy Blue Dress With Beautiful Printed Centre Panel By Young Viewpoint
This stunning dress was made from navy blue rayon in the late 1940s. It was cut in a classic hourglass silhouette with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The front of the dress features a panel running down the length of the dress which has an abstract blue and tan print on an off white background. It creates a wonderful slimming effect focusing the eye on the centre panel rather than the surrounding dress. The panel has ties at the top and there are also small functional pockets at the hip and three quarter sleeves with turn up cuffs. The dress fastens with an original side metal zipper and bears the maker’s label for Young Viewpoint of New York. We have found an original advert of a similar design dress but with slightly layer styling.
The dress is in very good condition with only a few small marks and a fray as pictured. There is a very fain larger mark further down the centre panel but this is barely visible due to the pattern.
