In my dreams, the world is packed with vintage from every size and era; so it feels great to have plus sized dresses in the shop too, even more so from the 40s and as pretty, flattering and elegant as this one.
This vintage dress brings together many of the typical elements of the 40s. The soutache motif, widely used during that period, stands out against the plum crepe fabric. Those slightly structured, darted shoulders, a gathered, inverted yoke waist and its flowy skirt complete this classic 1940s look. A matching belt that fastens with snaps and some buttons on the back will help you to put this dress on and off easily.
Fits like: XL
Shoulders: 16.3" - 41.5 Cm
Bust: 44.1" - 112 Cm
Waist: 35.4" - 90 Cm
Length: 42.1" - 107 Cm
Fabric: Rayon blend
Condition: Very good. Presents beautifully, and fabric feels sturdy and totally wearable. There’s a small mend on the skirt at the back, which blends really well due to the perfect colour matching of the thread with the dress. There are a couple of snags on the fabric and the soutache presents a bit of fraying in some areas.
