Sweet Disorder Vintage

1940s Apple Green Midi Dress

Sold out

Breathtaking 1940s midi dress in the most delightful shade of apple green. Fab peaked shoulders, pintucked waist and gored skirt. The sweetest arrow & heart brooch was pinned to the dress by the original owner and adds the perfect touch of sparkle and depth against the bright green fabric. I love the high split neckline and little pintucks at the shoulders. The fabric feels like a very light wool challis. It is baby soft and lightweight with absolutely no scratchiness. The silhouette is so iconic of the mid 40s era. A stunning 1940s dress in a rare and fabulous color.

This 1940s apple green dress is in very good condition. There is extremely subtle dye variation here and there as is typical with green dyes of this age. A small mend on the front of the skirt below the waistband and a 1 cm white line in the fabric that looks like a natural variation in the weave (see photo) also on the skirt. Freshly hand washed, steamed and ready to wear. This bright green beauty is over 70 years old and a true gem.
