In lovely condition with an 'unworn' feel to the crisp cotton, this is a gorgeous, 40s-style 'New Look' dress! It has a wonderful full skirt (shown over a net petticoat in this picture), shaped bodice, shoulder straps wide enough to hide your bra straps, and a self tie belt.
The fabric is patterned all over with splashy pink and pale turquoise blue flowers - possibly poppies? - on a white ground. There are two labels: one showing the make, 'Czarina', which indicates that the dress came from an independent department store; this one has photographed badly, and also states, 'Made in the UK'. The second gives the size (16), the fabric (100% cotton) and care instructions (wash at 40 degrees).
In very good vintage condition, it's marked as a size 16 and will best fit a modern UK size 12-14. Approximate garment measurements are, 40 inches/101.5 cms at the bust, 32 inch/81 cms waist, hips free, 34 inches/86.5 cms length from back of neck. NB petticoat is not included in this sale.
