RESERVED FOR SENDI - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - Original 1940s 40s Vintage Pastel Pink Day Dress With Fabulous Pleating
This beautiful dress was made in the 1940s from soft wool gabardine in a gorgeous shade of pastel pink. It is cut in a classic hourglass silhouette with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The short sleeves are slightly gathered at the shoulder and the buttoned cuffs give them a slight puffed effect. The small rounded collar leads to a single row of five fabric covered buttons which fasten the dress at the bust. Three pleats on either side of the buttons add definition and interest to the bust and the skirt has been accordion pleated to add wonderful movement and fullness.
Length: 42” plus 2 1/2” hem
The dress is in good condition with only a few pulled threads, a darn and a stain as pictured. The underarm seam would benefit from a few stitches to reinforce it.
