Early 1940's seersucker hostess dress with allover floral print in fuchsia, white and mint green. Dress has short sleeves and collared neckline. Long front metal zipper, bib detail on bodice that is accented with eyelet lace ruffle; this ruffle detail also appears on the patch pockets in the front. Two ties are at waist in back of dress. Sleeves are short and puffed. Skirt is long and flares out with a beautiful drape.

Label, size, material: no tags; will best fit sizes 6-8, or perhaps a small 10 (see measurements); material is a woven cotton seersucker

Measurements (taken flat):
Bust 18 1/2 inches across
Waist 15 inches across (can be smaller due to ties in the back)
Hips 22 1/2 inches across
Length (shoulder to hem) 54 inches

Condition (please see store policies for condition rating):
Very good. One rust colored stain on the back of the dress near the shoulder (see detail photo). Small pinhole near left front pocket (see detail photo). Light color fading and very faint yellowish stain on front near right pocket (see detail photo; I've tried to photograph this, but very hard to see). The dress is in very good condition for its age, with lots of wearable life to it. Flaws are not very noticeable when dress is worn because of the print and fabric drape.
