1940's cute stripe dress with peter pan collar
Really sweet little cotton dress, blue and white stripes with a peter pan collar in white eyelet backed with red, and matching white eyelet waist panel, also backed in red cotton. Little puff sleeves, trimmed in the red cotton. Buttons down the back to the waist, and has two ties at the waist, to tie in a bow at the back. The back of the waist is elasticated for ease of getting the dress on and off and for comfort; the elastic still has plenty of stretch.
Shoulder to Shoulder 13 (seam to seam) 16 (with the puff sleeve)
Shoulder to Waist 13
Length 31, plus 4 or 6 inches to let down (I believe it is 6inches, but I the hem is nicely sewn over each time, and I don't want to unpick it just to find out!)
Excellent condition, the cotton is soft but still very firm. No stains, rips or odours etc, just one tiny mark near the hem on the front left, as pictured. Gets lost in the stripy pattern and folds of the skirt. Bright and sweet!
