Forties True Vintage Crepe Dress with Floral Decor
This original vintage forties pink crepe dress is a wonderful find. Decorated with top-stitched flowers across the shoulders and bodice, which have delicate bead centres, and incredible crossover gathering over the bust, this dress is sure to steal the spotlight.
The half-length sleeves have small pleats near the inner elbow to shape them - yet another classic 40s tailoring detail. A wide waistband and panelled skirt complete the dress.
Fastened at the side with a metal zip.
Available at a reduced "Make Do & Mend" price due to the two pieces of decor added to the neckline, likely to repair the dress, by a previous owner (see image). These additions don't detract from the charm of the dress, however! There is also some tonal difference towards the upper shoulders which may come out in the wash. It's high up on the dress and so wouldn't be particularly noticeable when worn.
