Late 40s dress in a lovely vivid violet colour. Short sleeved bodice with a slit v-neck with collar. Strong padded shoulders. Quilted curved seams around the neckline with matching soutache. The fitted waist has a similar design with quilted seams and soutache and a dropped hip from which the skirt falls in small gathers giving it a very full fit. Side metal zipper fastener. Fabric has a feel similar to linen, slightly coarse and crisp with a woven texture. I think it is rayon, but not sure. No labels.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a Small. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Dropped Waist / Upper Hip: 32"
Shoulder to waist: 15.5"
(There is a 1" hem on this)
Very good condition.
-Some very faint underarm discolouration, see last photo.
-Dress has belt loops but no longer comes with the original belt.
