Can you smell the Summer?

Beautiful Rayon dress in a floral print of Fuchsia  & Off-White on a Midnight Blue ground. The flattering A-line skirt, the close-fitting V-neckline combined with short Butterfly sleeves and carefully placed bows, create a wonderful 1940s silhouette.

The Dress is fully lined.

Since many clients in the past highly valued to be able to wear a dress with or without shoulder pads (depending on the occasion), matching detachable shoulder pads can be ordered in the "custom features" section below. For everyone who loves to add even more authenticity and structure to this dress.


Complete your look with the matching Off-White Halo Hat "Summer Scent 1941" (as seen in first photo).





Fully lined. // Authentic 1940s close-fitting V-neckline. // Butterfly sleeves. // A-line skirt. // Decorative bows on shoulder, waist and upper hip. // Back metal zipper. // Classy below-knee length. // Invisible hem.
