1940s Lily of the Valley Print Korell Shirtwaister Dress
This glorious 1940s dress has a delicate Lily Of the Valley print and is a really rare plus size example of this style.
She has a button-through front fastening with 12 darling buttons made of early amber plastic with rhinestone centres and 2 co-ordinating buttons on the lapels. There is a stunning little overlap detail on the back of the collar which is such a couture finish, and a turnback housewife cuff on the sleeve.
This dreamboat is fairly sheer and unlined, so you may wish to wear a slip underneath.
It is made from a super soft cotton blend lawn
