Was £70 - Save £30!

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!
