1940s Blue Striped Collar Day Dress

I love forties dresses and this one is amazing! The color alone is just outstanding - this would have been hand dyed to get it to this color and for it to have survived all this time with no fading is amazing! The color was very hard to capture but the close up of the label is the best example. The fabric is cut mostly on the bias and I love the way the top portion buttons and the contrasting striping. The waist nips in and pretty pleats sit at each hip. The skirt is fairly full and swingy. It is made of a cotton linen mix with the texture and look of a fine linen. Hand finishes. Just amazing and in excellent condition
