We love knit dresses from the 1940’s and this adorable slim fitting number is no exception! Royal blue and the occasional black-hued yarn are knitted together in a lovely garment that snaps up the front: a front placket is covered with five decorative buttons. (Unfortunately one button is missing at the waistline). An elasticized waist meets a slim skirt that has a slight knitted stripe design, and a matching belt can be sized with adjustable rings. Three-quarter sleeves end in a thin ribbing, as does the bottom hem. Pair with sleek boots and a pretty scarf for brunch with the in-laws. The allure of this little honey will soon warm hearts!

Period: 1940’s

Measurements: Chest Front: up to 17 ½” Chest Back: up to 16” Waist: 31” – 34” Hips: 35” – 40” Shoulder to Shoulder: 14” Sleeve Length: 19” Waist to Hem: 28 ¼” Belt: 32”

Vintage Size: Unknown

Contemporary Size Equivalent: 6

Condition: Very Good. There is slight wear in the underarms. The waist casing needs a bit of repair and the elastic need replacing. The snaps are not original. It is possible that the original buttonholes were sewn up and snaps added. All of this could be reversed. The belt could be adjusted to be 2” longer. However, the garment is in good condition for its age and with some TLC could be restored to near its former glory.

Label: None

Original Materials: Wool blend yarn

Laundry Instructions: Professionally Clean of Hand Wash/Lay Flat to Dry
