XS 1940s Deco Sun Dress - Size 2 Strapless Summer Full Skirted Frock - Geometric Striped Red, Navy Blue & Gray on White Cotton - Bust 31.5

$ 165.00

A 1940s Deco print cotton dress in a fresh geometric stripe! It's a sunny strapless frock with a bandeau neckline, gathers to the sides of the bust, and a fitted waist seam with flared skirt. The skirt is very full, nearly a complete circle, with a single invert pleat at center front. This dress is likely 1946 or so, after war rationing ended but before the New Look debuted. A terrific pin-up girl dress from the 40s!
