With the most eye catching pattern in shades of green gingham on a waffled nylon mix fabric, this original 1940's dress is the perfect piece to add to your seasonal wardrobe.
The rounded neckline is framed by a simple shoulder line and a notched panel design along the yokes and central part of the bust-line. The short length sleeves frame the fitted bodice, and draw the eye to the cinched in waistline, accented by three seams that radiate upwards from the waistline in delicate pleats. The simple A line cut of the skirt is set off by a large front pocket along the hipline. Finished with clear decorative button fastenings along the central line of the dress.

Condition: This dress is good but not perfect vintage condition. A small scattering of age marks along the bottom left hand side front of the dress, next to the final button hole. Light wear to the fabric along both armpits and surrounding sleeve areas. A small snap tot he side of the 14th button. The last button on the dress does not match the design of the others. Areas of gentle wear to the fabric along the back of the bodice. These minor issues are only apparent upon closer inspection and do not affect the quality of wearability of this piece.
