Women's original vintage dress 1930s/40's style in fair vintage wearable condition. Would be good for WW2/1940's re-enactment/evacuee day or for theatre costume. Measurements:
Bust-Armpit to armpit: Approx 20 inches.
Waist-Across front: Approx 17 inches.
Length: Shoulder to hem: Approx 47 inches.
Colour: Browny/green (Variation in colour due to age) The photos outside make it look paler than it actually is plus the faults/stains look worse in the photos than they do in reality.
I think this dress would fit size 14-16 but please check measurements. It has a metal side zip that works but is stiff as it has lost a couple of teeth. I think the fabric is a heavy crepe, it has 'give' in it and the style could accomodate several hip sizes! It has shoulder pads, and a dropped waist with ties at the side. Lots of lovely details but does have the odd stain and stains under the arms (Colour has browned.)
Please note: This dress is old, has quite a few little pulls on the fabric plus one small hole right at the front (Sadly) but it may be repairable and may not show too much when worn. It has been in storage for many years and has a vintage smell that is fading now that I have it aired.
Any questions/further measurements please ask.
