Summer Ballads Dress
Vintage early 1940s silk rayon printed dress in deep royal blue with vibrant novelty floral print. This vintage 40s dress features lace up detail at neckline, patch pockets that resemble the shape of tulips, and short sleeves. Has side snaps at the sides. Dress has signs of wear. Hole in left underarm and top of shoulder (these are about 1" less than 2"). Thin fabric run along back yoke, scattered pin holes. Pockets could easily be tacked back on at corners. Still very wearable and fabric itself is sturdy. This was clearly a well loved and often worn dress by the original wearer.
