Sweet Disorder Vintage

1940s Appliqued Top and Skirt Dress Set

Sold out

Stunning 1940s dress set with a gorgeous floral appliqué. Lush hyacinth purple rayon crepe. The top has strong padded shoulders, an asymmetrical drape across the bust and a sweetly scalloped hem. The elaborate floral appliqué has a Deco feel and is made from the same fabric as the dress. Pretty covered buttons at the back of the neckline for ease. The skirt is a 40s classic~high waisted and paneled for a fluted shape that falls just below the knee. This set combines the elegance of the 40s with a dreamy feel that I absolutely adore. The perfect blend of strong tailoring and soft details.

This 1940s dress et is in good condition. It is structurally sound with only some flaws in the dye to note. There are places throughout where the dye has lightened subtly to a pinker tone, there are a few spots on the top and a little especially at one underarm. The skirt has a patch of more noticeable dye flaws on the lap area. See photos. The set presents beautifully and is freshly hand washed, steamed and ready to wear.
