Lovely 40s dress in a silky black rayon with a sweet figurative novelty print of little historical ships and ship crew characters, what looks like captains and a ladies with crinolines and parasols in blue and green and soft beige. Bodice is fitted and has a flattering diagonal bust draping and a high square neck. Short sleeves with padded shoulders. Waist cinches in and fastens with a side metal zipper. Straight cut skirt with a short back vent for movement and overwrapping waterfall drape to the side of the hip. Really stunning silhouette on this one!
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a Small or a UK10 approx. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Chest: 35" to 36" taut
Shoulder to waist: 17"
(There is a 2.5" hem on this)
Good condition. Tiny bit of discolouration and slight bit of wear to the underarms, but this is not noticeable when worn.
