This size XXS, teen or junior-sized 1940s day dress has eyelet ruffles accenting the green and ivory, eyelet-patterned, striped cotton fabric—a novelty print dress trimmed with its own inspiration! The cotton fabric is a medium-weight, with a surface texture similar to piqué. The dirndl-style dress has short sleeves, a square neckline, a fitted bodice and a full skirt, gathered at the waist seam. The hem is trimmed with a wider section of ruffled eyelet. White shell buttons fasten the bodice in back, along with 3 snaps on the skirt section (opening of skirt section only extends to 4 inches below the waist—so smaller hips will make the dress much easier to get on). You can see how tiny this dress is: it does not fasten all the way on our size XS mannequin, as shown—please check measurements for details. In very good to excellent condition, with just a bit of overall yellowing to the fabric from age and normal wear/laundering, this 1940s will be adorable if you are small enough to wear it!
