"French Rose" Vintage 1940's Turquoise & Pink Rose Dress UK 14-16 US 10-12


This brightly coloured 1940's cotton day dress, rendered in a bold pink floral pattern, set against paisley patterns and turquoise blue accents, is just the piece to welcome the warmer weather with.  

The V shaped neckline is framed by a notched collar, which draws the eye to the mock cross over design, finished with pearlescent button details. The simple shoulder line is accented by seams along each yoke, and sets off the mid length sleeves, which boast gathered pleats along the top of each shoulder seam. The elegant line of the bodice, draws the eye to the fitted waistline which is set off by a matching fabric belt, which is edged with a pearlescent buckle fastening. The simple cut of the skirt, is accented by a side pocket, along the right hand side of the hipline, completing this dress in an iconic 1940's design.
