Beautiful and elegant light maroon 1940s summer dress with an incredibly elegant cut that accentuates your curves. The cotton is light and soft for Summer and the small white print and texture to the material adds delicate interest without over powering the design of the dress. The nipped waist is balanced by the high collar and wider sleeves, and the fuller skirt that is cut on an A-line to the back. But my favourite detail is the hip pleats, added to the dress using a horizontal seam very much like the 20s flapper dresses, which adds width to the hip bone and fullness to the skirt with out weight, still keeping the lightness to the fabric without skimping on style. This is a beautiful dress!

We advise paying close attention to the actual measurements of the garment. Please get in touch if you have any questions.


• Gathered plated section to the hip to add fullness

There is overall fade to the dress, the inside is a stronger colour than the outer. There is a slight lighter fade to each shoulder from hangers, and a very small white mark to the bust by the button placket. All shown in photos.
