1940s Check Dress w Cape

This is everything you want in a 1940s piece, it's a fitted, sexy and made of checked wool number that is out of this world! It has that perfect understated, yet extremely dramatic line that pieces in the forties seemed to walk with ease. The dress is a almost dolman sleeve with rounded and slightly paddd shoulders. It buttons with little navy early plastic buttons and then nips in dramatically in at the waist The side pockets are very full and exaggerated - in fact the maker ran the side metal zip under on pocket as to not interrupt the fullness of the line! The skirt is long and lean with just a hint of an A-line shape. This has one added extra element though - the original capelet complete with a edging of hanging black silk balls along the edge. The capelet snaps into place with hidden under the collar snaps! Labeled Tall Togs (love that name!) and it is in excellent condition!
