1940's novelty print rayon dress has an interesting print that appears to be barbell weights. Print is done in white and light blue on a navy blue background.
Dress has a nice shirtwaist style with buttons up the front bodice. There is beautiful rusching stitches on either shoulder and a rounded collar. Some darts nip the waist in just a bit. Skirt has a straight cut.This one zips up the side with a metal zipper. Dress comes complete with a matching slip done in the same print but a thicker less see-thru version of the fabric.
Top layer dress is more sheer. Arm hole circumference: 13 inches. Condition: Near excellent, freshly dry cleaned. One tiny pin dot hole was patched from behind so it won't cause any problems.
3-4 tiny threads are out of place in the print. Also 3-4 tiny tiny light yellow spots seen on both slip and back of dress.
