WORKS WITH AND WITHOUT BELT!

Original 1940s fit and flare dress with wonderful smocking detail on the bodice and an over the knee skirt.

The black fabric is patterned with embroidered floral sprigs and feels like a dense rayon crepe. There are no labels.

The cut is semi-fitted on the bodice with a HIGH SITTING WAISTLINE that is above the natural waist but NOT as high as an empire line.

In my opinion…..I prefer the dress worn without a belt. It has a wonderful shape.

There is no size label. In my opinion the fit is a UK 12 suited to an individual of average height (not tall individual because of high waist bodice)


We advise that you check all the measurements below.

The garment is a mid-weight

Excellent Condition but with damage to belt as glue marks visible where fabric has been attached to buckle. See last photos. 

Please note that the belt is super long and excessive compared top the waist size of the dress.
