This 1940s hibiscus print dress is in good condition. Hidden metal side zip for ease. There is fading on the shoulders, a small pull and nick to the fabric at the neckline and a little soiling at the hem (see photos). The dress presents beautifully and the fabulous print masks the imperfections unless you study the dress closely. Freshly hand washed, pressed and ready to wear. This fun 1940s dress is over 70 years old and a dramatic beauty.
