This lovely early 1940s style wool crepe dress is a prime example of the silhouette of the era with its accentuated padded shoulder line, scalloped style yokes both front and back, and the geometric peaks on the flared skirt. The two stripey vintage buttons on the front yoke and the navy buckle add a great contrast, very popular in those times. Snap fasteners at the side.
This is my very first homage to the early 1940s and the wartime girls. These beauties are all made from original 1940s fabrics.
