A darling late 1940s dress, a classic with a fitted bias-cut bodice (turning the striped fabric pattern into diamonds!), cuffed contrast pique sleeves + placket, faceted "crystal" glass buttons, fitted waist with matching belt, and a full skirt. Super cute and priced down due to verrrry minor cosmetic stuff!

Good, wearable vintage shape. Cleaned. 75+ years old.

Minor overall wear from use/wash, and there are a few scattered tiny bluish marks to the white pique button placket. Nothing that attracts much attention when you're out running around...see photos.

The button under the belt is older, but does not match the others. It's common to lose this button from the belt rubbing. If the belt is worn, it's hidden. 

A great way to get true period style without the price tag!


Our pieces are true vintage with a history and a past life, not newly made reproductions. Minor signs of previous use and age are normal and expected for all true vintage pieces. Flaws and issues are carefully noted/photographed, and our detailed photos give you a good idea of the look of each garment.
