Lovely blue cotton batiste evening gown from the 1940s in size medium. With a few small repairs it will be perfectly wearable.
Beautiful color and a hard to find fabric. On Sale !
Measurements: Bust 34, waist 28, hip FREE, Length from shoulder to hem 57 inches and FULL sweeping hemline at 246 inches. True vintage, sweetheart dress made just after WWII.
One piece dress is made of semi sheer, baby blue cotton batiste. Gathered flounces at neckline, sleeve cuff, at tiered shirt and hem. The flounces are made with the same cotton batiste and are flocked with black flowers.
Side metal zipper works fine. This dress can be worn with a tiny bit of restoration. Otherwise there is enough vintage batiste fabric to made a trunk full of 1930s doll dresses!
This dress was home tailored for a graduation or party dress about the time the film, It's a Wonderful Life was made.
Darling, flouncy, very, very full with perfect fabric in the body. Color is even and it is free of odors. The black flocking shows wear on the trim.
One seam separation under one arm is one inch long. (easy fix) Front waist inset has a hole that is 2 inches long and goes into the fabric 2 inches. (perfect place to add some flowers!) At the top of each sleeve is a narrow line of spots that I believe are from a hanger. They are mostly covered by the flounce.
The dress is very lightweight, BUT it is SO full it will require a large Priority Mail, flat rate box for shipping in the USA. Part of the insurance is covered in that cost.
You can decline further insurance if you have a secure delivery site,
International rates vary.
I always combine shipping on multiple orders and refund d any overcharges.
