Vintage 1940s New Look Ethel Allen Red And White Full Circle Skirt Sundress With Crinoline

Perfectly perfect little summer sundress from the 1940s. Stunning red flowers and butterflies on an off-white background. Velvet trim round the top of the bodice. Halter style. The bodice is lined in acetate, and the skirt is lined in something that is like a sheer organdy or organza I believe. The dress has a side metal zipper, and, ta dah! an included separate crinoline--see last photo. Cotton, I believe, and extra small to small sized. The crinoline has a hook and eye closure and the waist band is the same flower fabric, the rest is tulle. Label says : Ethel Allen Stamford. One of my favorites in the shop right now.

Excellent vintage condition. The white parts of the dress are slightly more off white than the crinolines white bits so I suspect the dress has aged a bit, as far as it's color, and there are some tiny pinsized foxing marks in various areas. It all seams to blend in with the general business and color of the pattern. The crinoline has no issues whatsoever.

Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip.
