1940s True Vintage Lavender Dress With Shaped Waist Panel
Fabric has a fine satin over-stitched swirly pattern.  I think it has different shaded warp and weft threads as it has a pinkish shimmer to one direction.
It has a broad shaped waist panel trimmed with fabric covered buttons and fabric loops.  The upper bodice crosses over at the centre front.
There are rows of smocking to each shoulder which create soft gathers towards the bust.
The back has a simple waist seam and darts.  The sleeves are elbow length with deep shaped cuffs.
The original metal zip is at the side.  There is a half belt to the back.
This dress is beautiful and has a wealth of typically forties features.  The main body of fabric has no snags, holes or tears but three of the buttons have rust showing through but obviously they could be replaced.  There is a slight pinky area to one sleeve but not particularly noticeable among the folds of the fabric.  There is a number drawn into the dress facing, not visible when worn.
It has a machine stitched narrow hem which means it has probably been lengthened at some point in it's history.  There is no fold crease what so ever so it doesn't look out of place.
