Original Late 1940s 40s Vintage Red Casual Dress

Regular price £95.00 £0.00 Unit price per

This beautiful dress was made from red wool in the 1940s. It is cut in a casual style with a blousy top, padded shoulders and a small notched collar. Two pleats on each side of the hips give structure to the bottom section of the skirt. At the back, the skirt is delicately box pleated to give a flattering bustle effect. The three quarter length sleeves add to the casual vibe of the piece. Inside, the dress is unlined and without maker’s labels and it fastens with an original metal side zipper.

 

Bust: 36” (tight 38”)

Waist: 27”

Hips: 42”

Length: 48 1/2” plus 2” hem

 

The dress is in very good condition with no issues to note. 

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.
