A gorgeous early 1940s dress in lightly textured deep cornflower blue rayon, with beige lace front, opening with pop studs. Loose fitting as no other openings, so bear this in mind with measurements below. Lovely pointed arrow detailing to the lower skirt pleats, and rhinestone buckle to the attached belt (presently stitched in place at 32" but you could unpick this if you wanted to alter!)
Just under 16” between shoulder seams
Chest of garment 40”
32” waist, the belt fastens at 32“ 
Hip of garment 41 max
16” mid shoulder to waist, Skirt 26
23” sleeve from shoulder
Structurally good condition, wearable with some issues; a few small nibbles to back hem, one rhinestone O is misshapen at chest but not super noticeable, and belt missing a few rhinestones. There are some colour discrepancy blemishes smattered around of a more berry hue which I’ve lightened the images to show more prominently, mainly around the skirt but a few to chest. Gentle tonal fade to shoulder
