1940s Little Girls Party Dress, Dotted Swiss Squares, Sheer Rayon Organdy, Pale Blue and White

This very old little girls dress is a sheer rayon or nylon organdy; I am pretty sure rayon. This dress is a pretty pale blue with white tiny squares imprinted over the fabric like a dotted Swiss, only with squares. The squares have almost a rubbery type painted on feel. The dress has a sewn on belt that buttons in back and the dress fastens in the back, having faux buttons on the bodice front. You will need to locate a nice vintage slip to go under this sheer dress. Very charming.

This is in very good condition. This 1940s dress has a replaced button on the back belt that is a good match and a small tear to the fabric seen in the photo on the skirt just down from the waist on the front to the side. It really gets lost in the soft pleats. There is wear to the white squares on the front of the bodice. The fabric may be fragile in some places, such as sleeve seams, if worn by a rambunctious little girl, and who doesn't have one of those? Just make sure your child has room to move as this is a woven fabric. This would be great for home decor, display or I do think it can be worn, just maybe to parties and certainly enjoyed while it holds up. Overall I do think the fabric is quite sound, though very old. I am erring on the side of caution here.

Please compare to something you already own as I do not have any young children handy to ascertain the size!
