Unique early 1940's plaid wool dress with studded buttons along the shoulders and a wonderful belt. Lightweight wool with large bold squares of subtle pink, blue, gray and black tones. V insert across the chest with tucks above the bust. Slightly poofed shoulders with shoulder pads and wide dramatic sleeves. Gored skirt with tucked pleats at the front. Buttons are covered with black fabric and decorated with brass studs. Side metal zipper and a short metal zipper at the back of the neck. Awesome shiny black-blue belt, cinched at the center, closes with metal hooks. Unlined. No labels.

Condition: Excellent. No noticeable holes, stains or wear. On close inspection there is a very tiny frayed hole on the skirt. Also a small spot hidden in one of the pleats. One of the buttons is missing two little brass studs. None of these issues are noticeable. The belt has some wear, some minimal cracking and loss of the plastic coating, not noticeable.

Waist: @26"
