Handmade 40s day dress in a lovely autumnal stripe in white, grey and warm brown with floral/leaf garlands and small black squares to the pattern. Fitted bodice with short sleeves and padded shoulders. Collared v-neck with four brown tortoiseshell-esque buttons to the chest. Waist is fitted and comes with a matching belt with a plain brown buckle (not a perfect match to the buttons but goes well with the dress). Straight cut skirt with two shallow pockets to the hip, decoratively folded with a little button to the side. Skirt has a stitched down centre pleat. Dress fastens with a side metal zipper. No labels, appears to have been handmade.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a Small, approx a UK8. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Shoulder to waist: 15"
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 14.5"
-The belt is handmade and the backing is a little bit basic in construction, though you wouldn't really spot this when worn.
-Some faint yellowing to the upper back of the bodice and very slightly to one of the underarms, but this is really quite faint and doesn't detract. See photos.
-Some slight handstitches to the bottom of the skirt pleat. See photo.
