1940s Rayon Woodland Print Dress
This is just the most adorable day dress from the 1940s, made from a lightweight rayon with an intricate forest-woodland print throughout in shades of green and brown on a cream background.
Perfect for a spring or autumn wedding! Although not Horrockses, it does remind us of their style and prints.
This is a professionally handmade garment that has been made to a very high finish.
The neckline detail is particularly exquisite, and we love that is has the original co-ordinating belt and belt loops intact. There's also some really lovely intricate flatfell top stitching.
Excellent, no issues of note. There are no zip or button openings so it needs to be pulled over the head to get on. This means the waist is larger to get it over shoulders and then cinched in with belt. However, this would would fit larger sizes with a zip installed for ease of getting in and out. (Our talented seamstresses can do this at additional charge, if required).
