Lovely 40s day dress in white with a fun Venice scenic print with gondolas and buildings in line drawn black with shading in mustard yellow, teal green and deep maroon. Shirt style bodice with four small cream shank buttons to fasten. Collared neck and nice pleat detail to the shoulder. Short sleeve. Fitted waistband with side metal zipper and belt loops, but sadly without the original belt. A-lined bias cut midi skirt, lovely drape and fall. Fabric feels like a soft rayon.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a generous size Small. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Fit on model:
Waist: 28" to 29" stretched
Hip: up to approx 42" (has give due to bias)
Shoulder to waist: 16"
Length: 48" on hanger but this will fit a couple of inches or so smaller when worn as the skirt will stretch on the width due to the bias
(There is a very short bias bound hem on this)
Good condition. Missing the original belt. Some small stitch reinforcements to button holes. Buttons have been replaced but are original vintage.
