Sweet vintage 1940s 40s dress.

✧ custom made -- one of a kind!
✧ slate blue cotton eyelet with lovely swirl embroidery
✧ lavender colored button loops
✧ eleven large lavender + rhinestone buttons
✧ fully gored skirt for shape + swing

What a darling dress this is! The combination of the blue and lavender is just so lovely, and the integrated design of the button loops and large rhinestone buttons is just too pretty for words. This dress would be gorgeous with flats for trips about town, for tea with friends, or for bookstore excursions; and it would be wonderful with pretty heels for garden parties, outings with someone sweet, or for walks along the pier. A deeply pretty dress with a really fabulous design!

This beautiful dress was custom made over 60 years ago -- it is truly a treasure and one of a kind! There is not another one like it in all the world!!

Good vintage condition with several flaws. The most noticeable flaw is a burn mark on the bottom side of the dress; due to its placement, it does not at all catch the eye when the dress is being worn, and the hem could always be raised by several inches to get rid of it entirely. There are a couple of teeny tiny spots, and then two very very faded ones, the largest of which is on the front of the left hip; these also are subtle and not at all eye catching. Some wear to some of the purple loops. There is a very well done mend at the left hip, and a tiny hole a bit further down. This dress is GORGEOUS and presents really fabulously, but it has been priced with both its flaws and its virtues in mind. :)
