This slender silhouette 40s dress by Cay Artley is made of a pretty brown and gray plaid in a lightweight rayon blend.

It features a charming Peter Pan curved collar with a dark chocolate brown velvet cord tie, attached under the collar at the center of the back of the neck

This has a button front bodice, and side zip closure; the zipper is metal by Talon.

The front bodice is fitted with darts up from waist and in and up from the side seams.

The cuffed sleeve are 3/4 length.

The skirt is slender, with slightly slanted pockets just below the waistline.

Measurements of this garment (not of the body that will go in to it):

40" bust

30" waist

42" hip

16.5" shoulder

17.75" sleeve length

16" from center back of the neck to the waist

46 from center back of the neck to the hem

58" sweep of hem

The measurements translate to a modern size 10, or medium.

This is in excellent condition, freshly cleaned, and ready to wear. We did find a tiny, well disguised mended area at the back of the neck, maybe where the tie was attached at one time, is our guess. We would like to suggest that this could benefit from some small shoulder pads; most likely it had some originally.
