Vintage Early 1940s Fuchsia Floral Jersey Day Dress

We love the colors in this early 40s day dress!  Bold fuchsia and green flowers on a pale purple background.  Shirt styling but with an open front.  Small shoulder pads.  Unlined.  Side buttons.


  • DETAILS:
    Label:  none; homemade   
    Fabric:  Jersey knit      
    Circa:  Early 1940s

    BEST FITS:   XS   (see measurements)

    CONDITION:  Overall very good.  The dress shows normal wear.  As normal with this type of fabric, there are a few expected issues.  There is a bit of faint color bleed under one arm (not terribly noticeable).  There is a greenish stain on the shoulder, but it blends with the print enough to not detract.  There are tiny pin holes where a former owner wore a brooch to hold the open front together (easily covered by your own brooch).  All-in-all, the dress presents beautifully.   Priced Accordingly.  Sold AS IS.
