Sweet Disorder Vintage

1940s Savannah Animals Print Dress

Sold out

Size: Large

Condition: Very good

1940s pale blue border print midi dress. The print features animals of the savannah enjoying a watering hole. It is used to great effect on the bodice and skirt. Classic notched collar, puff sleeves and shirtwaist bodice. The skirt is cut on the bias for a beautiful drape. Wide waistband of the feather print fabric completes the perfection. Back of the dress is the beautiful feather print. Fabric is soft woven rayon. Metal side zip for ease. I adore this one of a kind beauty, she's so gorgeous and special. A classic example of 1940s dressmaking by a highly skilled home seamstress.
