Marvelous 1940s navy blue rayon mesh day dress with the fabulously sculptural peaked puffed sleeves. Beautiful pleating details at the bust and yoke, a lovely full skirt, and the magical mother of pearl buttons down the front. So simple yet so elegant. A great transitional piece, and perfect for layering. Zips up one side with an original metal zipper.

Excellent condition. One tiny break in the mesh at the back of the hem and subtlest of fade on one shoulder. Presents beautifully.


Fabric has a bit of stretch.
