Product description

Large size ‘make do and mend’ era dress, probably homemade from a light crepe type black fabric. Shoulder pads from the same fabric are attached inside, side zip, and there would have been a matching belt, but this is sadly missing. The daisy pattern inserts in the front add a splash of colour.

Condition: Very good apart from a 1.5cm x 0.5cm darn on front right hand top side. The darn is so good though that it won’t show up on camera despite many attempts to photograph it.

Measurements:

  • Underarm to underarm 22.5″/57cm – (45″/114cm bust)
  • Waist – side to side 18.5cm/47cm
  • Sleeve – underarm to sleeve hem 14.5″/37cm – The cuff can be turned up, making the length smaller.
  • Length – From the back neck to bottom hem 45.5″/115cm
