Vintage 1940s Nylon Floral Print Dress

Toadstool Farm Vintage

The 40s just had the best silhouettes, I do declare. This one is no exception. Everything from those strong sholder pads, to the smocking at the neckline and echoed at the wrists, to the wide waist and flared skirt. This dress is lovely. Nylon, floral print of red and purpleyblue and khaki green on a cream background. LOve the gathers at the bust too. 
Label reads: none

Excellent vintage condition. I spotted a few pinholes and one pea sized yellow mark thhat blends right in. See photo for that.
