This is a dress that we recently obtained from an estate sale! Garment was handmade in the late 1940s. The fabric is a slightly textured, semi sheer nylon with a novelty print of crosshatches and daisies. The colors are PALE YELLOW, BUTTERSCOTCH YELLOW, GREY and BLACK on a WHITE background. The dress has two small shoulder pads sewn in at the shoulder seams and a full, pleated skirt. Kimono Style sleeves with small arm gussets. Pleats in the bodice that go from shoulder to bust.
Garment has a functioning metal zipper at the side, and buttons up the front with BUTTERSCOTCH celluloid buttons. The dress has belt loops but the belt is missing. We have added a WHITE grosgrain ribbon as a belt, as well as an IVORY felt flower pin. Dress was photographed with a necklace that is not included.
We hand laundered the dress in a mild soap, stain treated it, then line dried, and steamed it for photography. The fabric is strong and the colors are good. Will need a steam/press before wearing.
