This beautiful short sleeve dress was made in the 1940s from a pink crepe with a lace top to simulate a jacket and dress set. The lace faux jacket has a large lapel collar, with a v-neckline created by a coming together at the waist. The lace falls in a pleasing waterfall effect and extends down to the back of the thigh at the rear. The crepe underdress has a rounded neckline with lace edge and extends down to below the knee. The garment has an opening down the centre of the back with a metal zipper and a maker’s label for Adrian inside at the neckline. 

Bust: 32”

Waist: 25”

Hips: 34”

Length: 43” plus 1 3/4” hem

 

The dress is in good condition, however it has some fading to the shoulders and some faint staining to the lace as pictured. There are a few small holes in the lace but they are barely noticeable due to the crepe underdress.

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.
