This is just so chic! Stunning 40s shirtwaister dress in a lovely striped pattern in black, olive green and burgundy. Lovely lustrous fabric, feels a bit like taffeta with texture to the stripe pattern. Bodice has a collared v-neck and buttoned chest with three ball buttons. Dolman half sleeve which buttons to the cuffs with three small covered buttons. Nipped in waist. Skirt falls in gathers over the hips and back giving it a soft fullness. Side metal zipper fastener.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a Small. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Fit on model: slightly clipped in waist
Underbust: approx 32"
Shoulder to waist: 16"
Sleeve from underarm to cuff: 8"
Cuffs are quite tight fitting and measure 5" flat across so about 10" in circumference
Very good condition.
-Only thing to note is a small patch repair to the underarm seam. See photo (two last photos show the same repair from different angles.
-I think it is possible that the ball buttons to the chest are a replacement as they don't match the small covered buttons to the cuffs.
-Dress has belt loops but no belt. Looks great with a plain black belt.
