1940's floor-length dress with dramatic ruffled back and calico/geometric print. The entirety of the back skirt is covered with tiers of ruffles. Ruffled boat neckline. Fitted bodice. Short sleeves are gathered at cuff. A-line skirt with long ruffle at hem. Side metal zipper. Unlined.
Condition: Very Good. A few spots on the ruffles- one that is on the neckline and one that is on the back ruffles; they are easily concealed by being made into a tuck as there is so much volume in those areas. Small mend in the underarm just above the zipper. Small tear at shoulder seam concealed by ruffle- easily repaired. Small tear at side seam at bust. Crude repair at right underarm.
Vintage dress dates to the 1940's and is made of a synthetic sheer organza. Fitted bodice has gathered center front at bust and puff sleeves that are tapered at cuffs. Full skirt. Bodice is lined. Skirt is not. Side metal zipper with waist tie that is attached at the side seams.
Condition: Very good with some stress to the darts at the back neckline as well as some holes at both sleeves' cuffs. I would recommend having the sleeves shortened by 1/2" to fix this. Because of the repairs that are needed, this is reflected in the price.
Vintage day dress dates to the late 1940's through early 1950's and is made of periwinkle rayon with a multicolored scratchy floral print. Fitted bodice with short sleeves.
