1940s Cream Linen Dress with Forest Green Scalloped Embroidered Edges, 36in Bust
This dress. It is a heart stopper! Wonderful cream linen 1940s dress with delicately scalloped edging that is trimmed with forest green embroidery and finished with clusters of little dots. So beautiful, so elegant. The dolman cut bodice and flared skirt, with the nipped waist accentuating the feminine silhouette and is classic 1940s. The collar can be worn done up for a prim look, or undone if you wanted to be causal. The lucite buttons are a perfect addition as they do not detract from the details, the embroidered edging takes the stage. Team with green accessories to really make the most of this dress, and get ready for the compliments!
