Sweet Disorder Vintage

1940s Deco Floral Silk Chiffon Dress With Mini Pockets


The daintiest 1940s floral silk chiffon day dress. Ruched dagger collar and ruched triangular mini pockets accent the bodice. Fab green floral buttons at the neckline, and cheeky little green pocket square in one pocket. Wonderful wide sleeves with gorgeous drape and little green trim at the cuffs. Slim silhouette in classic 30s style with kick pleats at the hem for ease. I adorn the cheery floral print and the unusually vibrant color palette. It is even brighter and more gorgeous in person. The silk chiffon has a little stretch and is slightly sheer. Such a special beauty!
