Original Vintage 1940s 40s Lilac Purple Wool Dress
This pretty shirt waisted dress was made from a lilac coloured wool in the late 1940s. The dress fastens with five white glass buttons at the front and has a standard collar. It features long sleeves and a belted waist that helps to create that classic 1940s hourglass shape. Four large pleated darts at the front of the waist help to give volume and shape to the skirt. There is also a large metal side zipper for easy access.
Bust: 38”-40” (dolman sleeves)
Length: 45 1/4”
The dress is in good condition, however there are a number of well executed darns and some pinhole nibbles as pictured.
