1930s Novelty print coral pink faux silk rayon dress - Medium
A divine late 1930s early 1940s day dress in a gorgeous shade of coral pink silk-feel cool rayon, with very unusual heavily stylised print of trees and leaves in black and pastel hues. With loose fit blouson style bodice and mid-length sleeve, it's collar is cut in one with the rounded neckline which is a lovely design detail. The skirt is gently flared, with stitched pleats to left hip giving a kind of darted feature (visible in pics below belt). Fastening with popstuds and hook/eye to a side opening, the piece comes with original self fabric belt and wonderful faux mother of pearl Art Deco celluloid buckle. Bear in mind with measurements that the piece is not meant to be close fitting, and the bodice is designed to be belted into the waist for blouson finish- unless you have a longer body!
Just over 15" between shoulder seams
Hip up to around 40"
Mid shoulder to waist 16.5"
Skirt 25.5" with 3" hem
Excellent condition, a small mark at neck and faint discolouration to skirt as pictured, fabric flaw to bodice, and v small pull at stitching to waist opening
