1940s Amazing Blue Floral Swing Dress

Made from an amazing printed silk that is cut on the bias so has a touch of stretch to it, this dress is just wonderful. It appears to have been stored properly for all these years as the color is as crisp and vibrant as the day it was made! The design is stunning. The base is a deep navy blue and then onto this is screened beautiful floral bouquets with each tied with a pale and pretty ribbon. The soft pink and cream pastel colors that have been used for the flowers are really beautiful and when combined with the pops of green it is just lovely! The cut is simple and sweet with a rounded neck and soft gathered pleating along each shoulder. The waist is cut loose and easy and the skirt is cut swing gently away from the more fitted hip area. It moves wonderfully! It has a slight nod to earlier eras in that it is not meant to fit tightly - it just skims the body and drapes. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with a back metal zipper.
