Vintage 1940s Green Shirtwaist Dress With Belt by R & K Originals
Pretty military green 40s shirtwaist day dress. I especially love the shirring at the waist and the details on the two breast pockets. Padded shoulders, hidden buttons down the front to about the hips ( the rest is sewn together), and a matching belt. Sleeves are just past the elbow. Feels like a rayon, the buttons feel like an early plastic, maybe celluloid? Label reads: R &K Original. Small Size, I'd say.
Excellent vintage condition. Structurally, this is really quite fantastic. But it does have some color fade and faint smudges especially along the shoulders and the back. And one pinhead sized brown dot on the back and another under an arm. Oh and the belt shows some signs of wear on the underside and some loose threads which could be snipped away.
Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust waist and hips. There's a bit of stretch to this fabric so you could probably get another half inch to inch from these. Armpit to armpit across bust: 39" Waist: 26" Hips: loose but approx. 45" Shoulder to waist: approx 14.5" Shoulder to bottom hem: 40"
Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected. Please feel free to convo me with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat. Any accessories shown, including crinolines, are for display only, not included unless otherwise stated.
