A stunning little day dress from the 1940s that is in amazing condition for it's age.  
High quality wool blend fabric makes this an ideal choice for the autumn/winter months and it would look adorable with boots and a chunky cardi!

There's a green and wine stripe through the fabric with a subtle gold lurex sparkle thread running through it.  There are 3 black glass buttons to the front and a side metal lapped zip.  

The original thread belt loops are present and suggest it had a much wider belt originally. This dress came to us with this skinny belt fashioned from a length of black silk velvet, and an original velvet buckle.  Although not original to the dress, we think it looks adorable so have kept them together!


Excellent, no issues of note.
