1940s Blue Paisley Rayon Shirtwaist Dress
1940s rayon paisley print shirtwaist dress.
Approximately a size XL.
1940s blue paisley print rayon shirtwaist dress. Button front bodice, with a side zipper closure. It has short sleeves with padded shoulders. The front of the bodice is pleated.
In fair to good condition, with no holes. When it was washed, the fabric bled. However, I think it looks beautiful! It is not super splotchy, and it gives the dress a dreamy, soft look. The front (right at the waist) has a few small spots (see last photo). It's very soft. It is missing its belt.
