1940s dressing gown . vintage 40s rose print dress
A vintage 1940s cotton seersucker dressing gown with a ruffled neckline, puffed sleeves, attached waist ties, ruffled hip panels (kind of like a peplum), and metal zip down the front. The fabric is a yellow cotton seersucker with a pink rose print.
Bodice length: 17"
Condition: Very good to good. This dress was *very* stained when I got it. After a lot of cleaning, the staining is mostly gone (there's just a tiny bit in the underarms and back shoulders that you have to search to find). In the cleaning process, the print faded in a few places--the back shoulders, sleeves, and front lower bodice (you can see in the last pic that the rose on lower front bodice is a bit lighter than roses elsewhere). This fading is somewhat noticeable, but the dress is still beautiful, and the colorful print of the dress is still striking!
