Original Vintage 1940s 50s WW2 Navy Dress Drape Skirt Pin Up Rockabilly
An unusual navy wool/gabardine dress c.1940s / 50s with a dramatic cutwork bow diagonally across the front which falls in a draped waterfall effect on the skirt. The dress has a wrap over front, 3/4 length sleeves, padded shoulders, nipped in waist, and pencil skirt; it fastens at the front with concealed poppers and hooks & eyes. The dress appears to have been custom made by a professional dressmaker, as it is mostly hand-finished; there are no labels.
Size: Suggested S/M
All measurements are external, taken with the garment laid flat, to be doubled where appropriate (with approx. metric equivalent):
Bust: 18" (45.7cm)
