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)

Waist: 14" (34.3cm)

Hips: 19" (48.2cm)

Sleeves underarm to cuff: 13" (33cm)

Length base of collar to hem: 44" (111.8cm)


Condition: In good condition overall- there is a small repair to the silk gauze lining around one popper (not visible when worn).



I do my very best to carefully list/illustrate any flaws I find. This item is sold as is - no returns unless the item has been grossly misrepresented.

Please check the above measurements and compare to a similar garment of your own before bidding - no refund offered for items that don’t fit.


Free postage is for UK only;

Overseas bidders must please contact me for a shipping quote before bidding - it will probably be more expensive than you expect!

Thank you
