Larger Size Vintage Royal Blue Taffeta Dress with Black Stripes, ca 1940s

$195.00 USD



  • Taffeta
This pretty dress is in excellent vintage condition; the only flaws I can find is a seam that needs to be re-sewn (see photo #5) and the fact that the original belt has gone missing. .Please be sure to note the graceful V neckline and large rounded collar, underneath which is a beautiful, large silk covered button; note, too, the three-quarter sleeves and notched cuffs, each adorned with an iridescent faux pearl button, the flattering nipped waistline and faux side pockets, one on each hip.

Approximate measurements: (Please note that this dress has been pinned to fit my mannequin.)

bust: 43"
waist: 33"
hips: 39"
sleeve length: 17.5"
length: 50"
side metal zipper length 9"

This would make a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection; it is a fine example of wearable 1940s textile art.
