This 1940s reproduction dress was made by me using a vintage pattern from the mid 1940s - Advance Pattern #4199. Machine sewn but neck, sleeves, and hem are finished by hand. It is made from a red and white striped cotton that is light and slightly springy. It drapes and moves beautifully! I believe the fabric is a cotton and rayon or nylon blend. The bodice is a wrap style and is slightly gathered to where it attaches to the shoulders - this allows for a "roomy" fit in the bust area. Neckline closes with a hidden hook and eye. (I did not add the bow at the neck as shown in the pattern but can do so if requested at no extra charge.) Dress closes with a zipper on the left side. Skirt is made from four pieces.
Belt not included. Photos are a little washed out, 4th pic shows the red color and fabric design the best.

Please note, this listing is for the finished dress as shown only. Pattern and accessories are not included.

Measurements - This dress was made using the measurements provided by the vintage pattern. I did not make any alterations. Pattern used is a vintage size 18. Bust 36, hips 39.
Actual measurements of the finished dress are as follows.
Under arm to under arm - 19" (I believe this will best fist a 34" to 38" bust)
Waist - 15" across (Will best fist a 27" to 28" waist)
Waist to hem - 28"
