Shipping calculated at checkout.

Late 30s/early 40s rayon print dress with matching chiffon redingdote.  Dress  features a high neckline and shirring at shoulders and bust.  Sleeves are puffed and have small pads for shape.  There are two metal zippers, one behind the neck and another at the side.  There is a separate panel at the waistline and the skirt is relatively slim fitting over the top of the hips and flares toward the hem with an inverted pleat front and back.

Redingdote has 3/4 sleeves, shirring at shoulders and hips and patch pockets on both the bodice and skirt.  There is a single snap at the waist to keep it closed.

Dress is opaque, redingdote is sheer.  Both pieces in excellent condition with only minor wear/aging.  There is a pinkish spot to the white portion of the print at front waist, see final photo.  There is also some very minor yellowing, again to the white portion of the print at underarms but it's so minor that it didn't show up in photographs.  There might possibly something I missed as print is very busy and would hide flaws.  Fabric is sturdy and seems are in good condition.

Fits like a size small, shown unpinned on a size 2 form.
