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.
