1940s Lavender & Black print St Michael’s Shirtwaister Dress
Sumptuous hues of Lavenders and Blues, and that print! The contrasting black keeps it elegant and classy
In a beautiful weighty silky rayon with an almost taffeta feel to it .
A simple shirtwaister with an inverted Box pleat front full skirt . The raglan sleeve is lovely and full giving comfort of movement across the bust and finished with a lovely puff and ‘V’ cut cuff. Light padding keeps a nice crisp neat to the shoulder line
Cute little a Clear Perspex floral buttons to the front opening and a Metal Side zipper fastening.
In lovely condition, only a couple of things to note.
One button has been replaced but not noticeable without close inspection and there appears to be some movement in colour Lavenders to Blues but to be honest is quite uniform over the garment almost ombrè so not sure if it’s always been that way. Either way its beautiful
Such a feminine look and feel to this little gem.
