40’s Zip Front Day Dress, Gray and White Pinstripe, Chore Dress, Rayon Blend, Deadstock, NWT$165.00- Fit and Flare Dresses
Wonderful vintage 1940s gray and white stripe zip front day dress. Deadstock and new with tags.
Medium weight rayon blend in gray with white pinstripes as pictured.
Fitted bodice with diagonal bust darts and front and back vertical darts for a flattering fit.
Three quarter length sleeves with turnback cuffs. Small triangular shoulder pads extend into the top of the sleeve itself creating a slightly peaked effect.
The skirt features front box pleats where it is sewn to the waist. The skirt back features vertical darts and is not pleated.
Winged collar. Comes with it's original self fabric buckle belt.
Zips down the center front with a 14" long gray metal zipper as pictured.
Unlined. There are no pockets.
I'm 5'4" and this comes to the bottom of my calf. It may be shorter or longer on you depending on your height.
DESIGNER LABEL: The original designer label is not present. There is a fabric content label inside the dress which states "Rayon & Acetate / Style 1467 / Lot 1033N.
There is also a hangtag which states "Ramsgate The Classic Blend / Viscose & Acetate" and an orange hangtag from the Emporium which was a Northern California department store.
CONDITION: Excellent - this is unworn deadstock with original hangtags. There is no discoloration, fading, stains, snags, or picks or other issues. The metal zipper works very well with no issues. The only thing is a slight storage odor which will come out when this is washed or dry cleaned.
SIZING: Tagged a vintage size 22-1/2. As size designations have changed over the years and based on the measurements below, I'd say this would best fit a modern size XXL to 1X.
Please note this is shown on my size Medium dress form and will fall much better on the proper size body.
Shoulders: 17" Across - Shoulder Pad to Shoulder Pad
Outer Sleeve: 17" Shoulder seam to cuff end (includes 1-7/8" wide turnback cuffs)
Inner Sleeve: 10-1/2"
Skirt Bottom Sweep: 76" Around
Bodice Length: 17" - Top of Shoulder to Back Waist Seam
Skirt Length: 31" ~ Waist Seam to Skirt Hem
Wonderful day dress from the 1940s.
