"Chartreuse Butterflies" Vintage 1940's Silk Chartreuse Butterfly Print Dress UK 12 US 8

This breathtaking 1940's silk dress in the most iconic shade of 1940's chartreuse with a pattern of butterflies in a soft white, is the perfect addition to your vintage wardrobe.

Her V shaped neckline is framed by a simple pointed collar, and shirring stitched along each shoulder line, that accent the inserted shoulder pads. Her wide short length sleeves set off the elegant bodice. Her cinched in waistline is set off my shirring stitches along each side that drape into loose side pleats along the skirt.
Finished with green toned pearlised button fastenings along the centre front of the dress, this eye catching number is sure to be a statement piece.
