1940s Dark blue rayon lattice peplum dress - Extra small
A chic 1940s navy blue dress, with side button fastening and half belt tying to the back. Shoulders are padded, with tightly ruched detail, and bodice is kind of blouson, ruched to the side seams at waist. Straight skirt, all unlined, with fabulous lattice peplum! (lighter circle on the image showing side opening is from the camera, not on the dress!)
Chest of garment 36” although meant to be unfitted
Waist a comfortable 24”, maybe to 25 tight
Mid shoulder to waist 15.5” approx, Skirt 26.5”
Presents well, fade along shoulder and a hole from poor hanger use at one shoulder has been darned. Small darn to back neck and skirt, faint linea colour discrepancy at skirt which I could barely pick up.
