This wonderful and iconic 1940's day dress in a soft palette of grey and taupe plaid with white and black accents, is just the piece for your everyday vintage wardrobe.
The V shaped neckline is framed by a stylised pointed collar and a simple shoulder line accented by gathered pleats beneath the collar that radiate along the yokes. The short length wide sleeves are accented by fold up tabs, finished with black decorative buttons. The elegant bodice is set off by central black button fastenings, with a fold down tab beneath the top button. The cinched in waistline is set off by a matching fabric belt that fastens with a matching central buckle. The timeless A line cut of the skirt boasts a pocket along the right hand side hipline and double pleat features that run from either side of the front of the waistband, finished with button fastenings along the length, completing this dress in an iconic 1940's day wear silhouette.
