1940s Floral

This is so cute!  Very authentic 1940s, except for the length – would have been ideal about a foot longer!  Love it regardless, especially the keyhole to both front and back, which is a bit unusual.

  1. It’s a really lovely dress and the matching front and back is a really nice quirk. I know what you mean about the length – but, wow, you can really carry it off!


    1. Hi there Karen, thank you! I am always extra chuffed to find a good 1940s repro as the originals are either extremely expensive if in good condition, or have a lot of issues. This is a cute one! Thanks for taking the time to write, D xx
