Regular price £165.00 £0.00 Unit price per

This gorgeous dress was made from cold rayon in the 1940s. It features a wonderful novelty print of red and white circular amoebas on a navy blue background. Small shoulder pads and the nipped waist give this dress a classic 1940s silhouette. It closes with four buttons from the neckline to the waist as well as a metal side zip. The skirt is full and swishy and has gorgeous inverted gored pleats that add wonderful movement. This piece just screams 1940s style and would be absolutely perfect for Labour Day or Bastille Day!


Bust: 38”
Waist: 26”
Hips: 44”
Length: 45 1/2”

 

The dress is in very good condition throughout except one tiny nibble as pictured.

This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.

 

They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in two different options:

 

1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight dresses, blazers and suits

or

2. White cotton muslin for lightweight summer dresses (so they don’t show through the fabric)

 

They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.

 

We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
