Vintage 1940s Dress Button Through Blue Linen 40s Wartime WWII Bombshell

$136.06

Shipping to United States: $15.04

Stunning 1940s hand made fit and flare Linen Dress, made from a woven linen, with raised areas giving a very classical look of a polka dot in a blue.
There’s a beautiful white linen shawl collar which finishes in a point to the back.
The shoulders are slightly padded and it has a dainty half belt to the back with buttons.

This is an exceptionally beautiful dress, which was added to a fashion designers collection in 1948 where it has remained, although it has been worn.

The dress is in a lovely vintage condition, and highly wearable. Unfortunately it's without a label, the only details were in the entry book, as to date and where purchased. As the dress is unsized I’m giving measurements taken seam to seam when the garment was laid flat and are given for you to compare against a similar garment.

Measurements;
Guide size 8/10
Length; 42”
Underarm to Underarm; 36”
Waist; 28”
Hips; 36”
Sleeve; 18”

All garments are dry cleaned prior to listing.
Please drop me a line, if you have any questions.
