♛The Details

Photos don't do this justice! Very well-designed late 1940s dress in ivory rayon gabardine, the fabric that seemingly wears like iron. Awesome deco details throughout, including those self-fabric buttons. Hourglass waistline with half-belt detail; skirt is a classic sheath with actual tiny pockets behind the welt and button trim. Dress closes with side metal zipper. A great neutral to pair with any color...from black to red to hot pink or apple green.

Would even make a great get-away dress for a bride on her honeymoon.

All accessories (belts, jewelry, crinolines, pins, etc.) are for style inspiration only unless indicated.

♛The Measurements

About a modern size L to XL
Bust (underarm area measured flat then doubled): to 42"
Waist: 31"/snug 32"
Hips: to 42"
Length of bodice, shoulder to waist area: about 16"
Skirt, waist area to hem: about 29 1/2"

♛The Condition

Very good shape, sturdy, very clean for the era and the color. Recently dry-cleaned, it's ready to wear. The only thing I could find to note is a couple pinprick-sized extremely faint rust? specks on the bodice, only visible if you go over the fabric inch by inch up close.
