Darling vintage 1940s classic day dress with the sweetest embroidered floral design. Dress has a small open Peter Pan collar with a centre front bow. A full button front with matt gold buttons, short sleeves and a structured waistline with a medium full gored skirt. It still has its original belt. Dress is unlined. Fabric feels like a linen or rayon blend? This is a home sewn dress.

As with most items of clothing that are 80 years old there are a few stress seams - one sits at and just above the left side of the waistline. The belt does cover most of it. The darts on the bust have slight/very minor stress. The belt is a bit rough. There is a very tiny faint spot on the left side. It is minor and I have a hard time finding it. I lightened the last 3 photos so you could see the above items.

I love the colour of this green! The photos do not do this lovely justice!

Measurements: please allow a little extra room for comfortable fit and ease of movement. Item is laid flat, measurements are taken and then doubled for bust and waist.
