This has to be one of my favorite dresses made from one of my favorite repro patterns.

The front yokes made from actual 1940s fabric! I MEAN, COME ON, have you ever seen a cotton fabric that cool!

The dress is navy (and that color is hard to photograph :) ), NOT black, and has a bit of a tooth to it. Its 100% cotton (because that's how I roll) but you will need a lint roller because it tends to attract lint. I actually hang the dress inside out which helps a lot.

The front buttons are fully functional, and the dress has a side metal zipper. The back of the dress has gathers that lay flat across creating a boxy look that is totally period appropriate.

I love this dress, but it's too large for me now and rather than hold onto it I'm going to give it a chance to be worn by another lovely stout gal!

This dress will fit a lovely lady who is or below 50 bust 40 waist and 50 hip. NO larger.

You can machine wash this rough and tumble though be careful of fading after time. I hand washed it myself. Hang to dry and press with a pressing cloth and lots of steam :)

Please ask any and all questions prior to purchase.
