Original Late 1940s 40s Vintage Red Casual Dress
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”)
Length: 48 1/2” plus 2” hem
The dress is in very good condition with no issues to note.
