This beautiful day dress was made in the 1940s from rayon. It has the most wonderful novelty print featuring tulips and what may be roulette wheels, dart boards, passion flowers or flowerbeds (discussions ongoing on this one). It also boasts a dagger collar on a v neckline and ten black faceted glass buttons and loops. It also features practical waist pockets which are pleated at the bottom to give additional movement to the skirt.

Bust: 41”
Waist: 31”
Hips: 48”
Length: 43”

This dress is in good condition, it does have some marks as well as some thinning of the fabric at the back just below the collar (we have shone a light behind it in the picture so you can see).

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.
