Original 1940s 40s Vintage Red Green And Brown Floral Crepe Dress
This gorgeous dress was made in the 1940s from crepe. The pattern features stylised flowers in vivid shades of red green and brown. The dress is cut in a classic early 1940s hourglass silhouette with a beautifully nipped waist. The shoulders are emphasises through the use of shoulder yolks surrounded by pleating which adds interest and a little puff to the shoulder. This yolk extends all the way along the back of the dress. The keyhole neckline fastens with a press stud and leads to a tapered yolk at the waist which gives extra shape. The skirt is free flowing and comes in a lovely longer length while the sleeves are designed to be three quarter length, perfect for early autumn. The dress fastens with press studs at the side and is unlined and without maker’s labels.
Bust: 34” (tight 36”)
Waist: 24” (tight 25”)
The dress is in very good condition, however there is a hole at the underarm, a few loose threads and a mark which blends well into the pattern. The original belt is no longer present.
