Love at first sight. That is how I would describe my feeling for this dress. I simply adore the unique pattern and colors of this fabulous Forties dress. The base color is heather grey and is accented with bright yellow abstract floral patterns and black and burnt umber orange butterflies.
I also adore the fabulous frilled ruffled skirt. There is a zipper at the left side of the dress.

The pattern and the fit of the dress are both so unique. It is a must-have for a WWII era buff, vintage pin-up extraordinaire!

Belt not included but added for inspiration!

The flaw of the dress lies in the right arm pit. The fabric has mild stretching and it a tiny bit frayed. The fabric is still in very good condition and I do not foresee the fabric fraying further. Older dresses from this area are often a bit frayed or discolored in the armpits. The flaw is very minor, but worth mentioning. Flaw is reflected in the price. Please convo me with questions.
