here is a very lovely vintage dress
from the 1940s to early 50s
made of satin-backed poplin in navy blue with an elegant, subtle sheen
and a screen-print starry polka dot design

this is sweetly-styled with 3/4 length kimono sleeves,
a softly pleated origami-esque detail at the bust
and a pretty bow in center, embellished with a sparkly rhinestone paste button

it's nicely darted and fitted through the waist
with knife pleats on the skirt
& fastens with a hidden metal zipper closure in the front
comes with its original self belt, although I wasn't sure if the buckle is meant to be worn in front or back. I've shown it in back so as not to visually compete with the bow ~

label: the only tag I found was a small lot & size 12 tag, hidden under the neck facing in back

m e a s u r e s

chest: 36" / 91cm
waist: 28" / 71cm
hips: 38" / 97cm
sleeve length: 21.5" / 55 cm from center back to wrist (had to measure this way because of the dolman / kimono sleeve style; no shoulder seam)
overall length: 40" / 102cm nape to hem with a 3" hem allowance

belt is 5/8" wide and has 5 sizes ranging from 24.5" to 27.75" around (with 2 1/8" room on the strap if you need to add a larger size)

c o n d i t i o n

appears to have been originally made for a 26" waist -- at some point, the dress was let out on two of the waist darts in the back. This is only noticeable if you're looking for it and could easily be taken in if needed. Aside from that, I don't see any stains or flaws other than two missing rhinestones (which I personally don't think detracts since the backing is a silver color).So all in all, excellent beautiful condition ♥
