Original 1940s 40s Vintage Rayon Jersey Novelty Print Bluebell And Butterfly Dress
This fabulous dress was made in the 1940s from firm fitting rayon jersey. It features a beautiful bluebell and butterfly print in vibrant shades of royal blue and green on an off white background. The dress was cut in a flattering hourglass silhouette with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The small pleated peplum adds emphasis to the waist which can be cinched in using the original fabric belt. The cute sweetheart neckline terminates in a small decorative tied bow and the dress fastens with small concealed buttons on the side. This dress is so flattering, nothing quite skims the body’s curves like rayon jersey!
Length: 41 1/2” plus 1” hem
The dress is in good condition, however there are some areas of slight discolouration and foxing but these are disguised due to the busy pattern. The back of the belt also has some cracking but this is not visible when worn.
