Vintage 1940s Day Dress Brown Gabardine w Specks Size M


$ 295.00

  • Product Description

This is a wonderful 1940s day dress that is made of a brown gabardine fabric with beautiful weight and fall.  The fabric is woven with specks in tones of blue, red, green and white.  This 1940s day dress has a pointy straight collar, two matching buttons at either side of the upper bust and four buttons below the waist.  The sleeves are made in a bishop style, cut full, but with fitted cuffs, each cuff closing with two snaps that are covered with matching buttons.  The waist is seam defined and cinches with a matching belt.  The skirt is gathered below the waistline so that it falls in pleats.  It closes with a button at the back neck and with a metal zipper up the back and is unlined.   There is no label, but I’m sure that this 1940s day dress was manufactured.  The dress should fit a medium size but please note the following measurements for fit:

Shoulders:  15 1/2” across seam-to-seam

Sleeves:  27 1/2” from the shoulder seam, but meant to puff out at the cuff

Sleeve inseam:  19”

Bust:  38” 

Waist:  34”, meant to be cinched 

Hips:  38”, meant to fall loosely in pleats

Length:  42”, measured flat

Condition:  This 1940s day dress is in very clean condition with no pronounced wear, tear, stains or odour except for a tiny bit of wear to one corner of the belt buckle.  Otherwise, this 1940s day dress looks like it saw little use and was well stored over the years.  

This is a wonderful example of a 1940s day dress - beautiful fabric and style!
