"Evergreen" Vintage 1940's Green Wool Day Dress UK 16 US 12


This wonderful 1940's wool crepe mix dress in an eye-catching shade of evergreen is the perfect piece to add to your everyday wardrobe.

The square neckline of the dress is framed by trailing floral embroidery that joins the matching decorative bow placed along the left hand side of the neckline, which is set off by four pleats that run along the yoke from the left hand side shoulder seam. The simple shoulder line boasts small internal shoulder pads along the top of the sleeve seams, drawing the eye to the 3/4 length sleeves. The tailored bodice is set off by curved seams that join the cinched in waistline. The matching evergreen wool crepe belt sits along the waistline and sets off the small pleats that radiate into the flowing skirt, completing this dress in an iconic 1940's silhouette.

Condition: This dress is in near vintage condition. A few very scattering of age marks to the skirt, these appear as a slightly darker shade of green and so are not apparent when the dress is being worn as they are well concealed within the pleats. A small mark to one of the extremities of the belt . Very gentle wear to the wool crepe along the armpits.  These minor issues are in no way apparent when the dress is being worn. Please refer to the photographs as they form part of the product description.

Washing instructions: This garment should be dry cleaned or hand washed in cool water.

Fabric: Wool Crepe
