It has a defined waistline and loops for a belt, but no belt is provided.
Sizing: No size is indicated on this 1940s day dress, and although this should fit a large size depending on preference for looseness, please note the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the dress into account:
Shoulders: 18 1/2” across the shoulder seams
Sleeves: 18” from the shoulder seam
Sleeve inseam: 10 1/2”
Bust: 42”, but should fit loosely
Waist: 36” around, should be cinched with a belt
Hips 42” around, should fall loosely
Length: 44”, measured flat at the back from the neck seam
Condition: This 1940s day dress is in good condition except for about 8 small holes in the right bodice as well as a few other tiny holes and pinholes elsewhere. The hemline was re-done, so the original sew holes are visible. Otherwise, this 1940s day dress presents itself well.
These 1940s day dresses are becoming very difficult to find - wonderful floral rose print in striking colours!
