Sweet Disorder Vintage
1940s Capelet Day Dress
Vintage 1940s day dress in a fab shade of duck egg blue. Demure little caplet is echoed by the peplum and emphasizes your waist. Pretty bule & white buttons complete the dainty beauty. Hidden metal side zip. The soft woven fabric feels like cotton or rayon. Label: Debonair Junior. Good condition. The fabric is sturdy and fresh with no damage. There are a few discolorations to note~ a lighter spot on the back of the peplum, and a patch of rust spots near the hem on one side (see photos). There is discoloration to the bodice at the underarms, but it is hidden by the capelet when the dress is worn (see photo). There is a scattering of small inconsistencies in the dye and a few small faint spots, as is common with a pale colored dress of this age. The dress presents flawlessly when worn. Freshly washed, steamed and ready to wear.
