Navy blue 30s/40s dress in a soft slightly stretchy fabric with a ribbed texture. Long sleeves with padded shoulders and five tiny covered buttons to the cuff. High neck with a small tie to the back and an orange ribbon band around the collar. Underbust is fitted with small gathers to give fullness and a raised V design between the bust. Fitted waist with loops through which an orange tie, matching that of the collar runs and fastens at the back with three hooks and eyes. Midi skirt, hangs beautifully, with soft clinging stretch. Dress fastens with a row of tiny covered buttons and loops to the back. So elegant! But you might need a little bit of assistance with all the tiny little buttons!
