1940s Powder Blue Floral Cotton Day Dress, 38in Bust
Delicate and simple 1940s homemade cotton day dress that is just what you need for hot summer days. The loose straight cut dress can be worn with a belt or loose, and I believe that this was made for maternity wear, due to the style. But do not let this put you off, with the addition of the right accessories this would be a perfect easy to care for 1940s dress to add to the collection. She has a few faults, but is still very charming and has plenty of life left in her!
