This stunning dress was made in the late 1930s / early 1940s from sumptuous silk in a black and yellow circular print. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with gathered peak shoulders and a nipped waist that is cinched in with the original belt. Shirring below the collar and shoulder pads emphasise the strong lines of the dress. The unusual statement collar features petal layers all around the neckline that loosely drape over the bust. The sleeves are gathered near the wrist and shirring at the waist gives the skirt wonderful volume and flow. The dress fastens with an original metal side zipper and is unlined inside. 

 
Bust: 36”

Waist: 26”

Hips: free

Length: 47 1/2”

 

The dress is in very good condition with only a few minor flaws as pictured.

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 pure white cotton.

 

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.
