Pretty and effortless -- with a little glitz! -- 1940s sheer navy day dress featuring short sleeves with flattering darts, loops of mauve sequins around the neck, a fully detached belt to nip in the waist and flowing, gored knee-length skirt. So charming and easy to wear! Unlined, sheer, pull-over, no closures.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →shoulder to shoulder: 17 inches →bust: 40 inches →waist: 32 inches →hips: 48 inches →bodice length: 15 inches →skirt length: 24 inches →overall length: 39 inches →sleeve length: 8 inches →belt length: up to 37 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: Small-Medium; though this garment reads as larger, with no closures, it will need to be pulled over the shoulders and the hips, making it more suitable for a smaller size.
CONDITION: Good vintage condition. There's some light wear to the sequins and a few minor pulls to the fabric, but most notably, this garment has some underarm odor. I treated it at home and it's improved greatly, but I'd imagine it just needs a good dry clean -- and my favorite dry cleaner is currently closed due to the pandemic! Since I don't like to trust vintage (especially 40s sequins) with just anyone, I've discounted this garment for you to take to your favorite dry cleaner. 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: Navy blue with mauve sequins
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Appears to be made of crepe chiffon and sequins. Dry clean only.
