This wonderful 1940's dress rendered in a deep shade of Bordeaux corduroy, is just the piece to welcome to your seasonal wardrobe.
The slim V shaped neckline is framed by a simple shoulder line. The short length sleeves boast slim gathered pleats along the top of each joining sleeve seam. The fitted bodice is accented by a curved seam beneath the bust-line from which gathered pleats radiate across the bust. The fitted waist panel boasts a rounded bottom seam, which draws the eye to the panelled cut of the skirt, completing this dress in an iconic 1940's silhouette. The back of the dress features a curved base waist seam.
