1940s Ribbed Nubby Knit Pencil Dress

Regular price $78.00 Sale

Shimmy shimmy in this 1940s royal blue sleeveless ribbed knit dress featuring a high mockneck, vertical ribbing, drop waist accent banding, give to the fabric and a flirty, flippy hem that will have tons of movement as you strut. Pair with a 1920s lariat necklace and Victorian boots for an era-bending showstopper. Please note: yes, this dress probably had a matching jacket (ugh!), so it's possible its sister is out there somewhere. Unlined, ever so slightly sheer, quarter metal zip at back of neck.

MEASUREMENTS:
(taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience)
→shoulder to shoulder: 16 inches
→bust: 36 inches
→waist: 28 inches

ESTIMATED SIZE: Medium

CONDITION: Very good vintage condition with some slight pilling and very light discoloration at the underarms, mostly on the inside of the fabric and not visible when worn. There is also a patina to the zipper, see photo. The zipper works well and doesn't stick, and the patina could likely be removed, I just didn't want to get too aggressive with the surrounding wool. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.

COLOR: Deep, royal blue

MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Appears to be made of wool. Dry clean only.

PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers cannot accept returns due to fit. Please compare the detailed measurements noted above to one of your garments that fits you well. Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage/antique, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear, as noted in the description. To learn more, please view our store policies.
