1940s Dotted Day Novelty Swing Dress

This forties day dress is just fabulous! Its made of s silk that is light weight and drapes well.† love the screened print - it has a snowflake feel with little blue & red dots with screened "flakes" in each. These are on a soft grey backdrop with a scattering of white "flakes" all through! Its just stunning! The cut is that classic soft, bloused forties cut with a belt to cinch in and define the waistline. The skirt is made of long vertical panels of silk all pieced together perfectly - this creates a lot of movement and swing/ The top is loose and comfortable to wear. I love the fabric covered buttons - they just do not make buttons like that anymore! It appears unworn and is in superb condition!
