Late 40s Coral Gabardine Day Dress, S M


A gorgeous example of late 1940s casual wear. In 1948, this dress cost between $11 and $13, approximately $120 in today's dollar. A perfect color for any season, but especially striking in spring with added green, light blue or yellow. Belt not included; original belt is long since gone. Pleated collar, button front, pleated skirt, bracelet length sleeves. Light shoulder pads. 

Measurements

Bust 38"

Waist 28"

Hip 42"

Note that this dress is pretty short waisted - just 15.5" from shoulder to waist.

Skirt length 31"

Condition

Very good vintage condition. There are a few stressed seams around the waist and a couple buttons might need reinforcement, but no other issues to note. 

Label

Townfield. I haven't been able to find much about Townfield except they were based in New York and made in New Jersey.
