1940s VOLUP Pure Silk Oyster & Airforce Blue Screen Printed Dress


I had the pleasure of meeting the lady who’s mum made this dress, she was a tailoress and worked for many highly regarded fashion houses in the 30′-1950’s
including Wetherall.
This is a stunning example of her exceptional work, a piece she had made for herself just after WW2 had ended, her daughter recalled.
An exquisite Screen printed Pure Silk occasion/day dress.The print is so classy, floral but more architectural than flowery in hues of white and grey blue on a soft oyster coloured silk. A lovely square neck is softened by the beautiful draping to the front panel down to the the waist and finished with a neat little self belt.Drawing attention to the waist and creating a lovely nipped in silhouette.
Side fastening with original zipper.
A touch of Luxury then and now a beautiful piece of Luxe Vintage glamour to add to a very glamours vintage girls wardrobe..
