Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 1940s swing style rayon dress printed in a tulip print floral pattern. The print is in tones of blue, red, pink, gray and white against a black background color. The dress has cap sleeves and a V shaped neckline. The neckline continues in a diagonally directed seam that is accented with eight covered matching fabric buttons along the seam line. The dress has a defined waistline and its skirt is gathered in pleats along the waistline. The dress has a matching sash belt with a bow front that attaches to itself with a snap - the snap may need to be moved to fit your waist size.
Label: No label - most likely seamstress or home made
Color: Black, red, pink, blue, gray and white
Sizing: No size is indicated, so this would fit a large size - please rely on the following measurements for fit, keeping the style of the garment in mind (please measure your body or a similar garment that you might own for comparison):
Shoulders: 16" across, from shoulder seam to shoulder seam
Bust: 45" around, taken at the arm openings, but should fit loosely
Waist: 34" around, uncinched - belt now cinches at 34", but should be adjusted smaller by moving the snap
Hips: 40" around, but meant to fall loosely
Overall length: 41", measured flat
It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear, stains or odors. This dress looks to have seen little use was well stored over the years.
This is a very pretty dress.....nice old rayon fabric that falls beautifully.
