A new, ready-made 1940s reproduction dress. Perfect for WWII events, swing dancing and everyday wear! Carefully constructed using a vintage 1940s sewing pattern from my collection and a combination of new and vintage materials. Dress has 3/4 length sleeves, zips at the side and has matching ties attached to the waist. Ties can be adjusted slightly if you wish the waist to fit more closely.
