1940s Green Print Silky Rayon Dress

The fabric of this dress only just manages to take center stage over its pretty and simple lines! It is that perfect silky rayon you can only find from this time period and is as crisp and bright and vivid as the day it was made. The cut of this dress is as equally gorgeous with lots of pretty details you want in a dress from this time period. The top skims over the bust and buttons to close. Pretty pleats are set into each shoulder. The skirt skims over the hips to a slight flare as it ends below the knees. The color is a deep forest green and the fabric has a little cross herringbone feel texture woven right into it. Pretty sprays of flowers finish it! Wonderful condition!

Unlined and closes with buttons at the front. There are two tiny pinhole repairs at the front just under the waist seam. Priced accordingly
