Autumn Motif Dress


$185.00

Vintage 1940s brown tafetta dress with plaid contrast panels. We love the playful mix of pattern and fabric, all kept in a sensible palette of warm muted browns. Perfect for the fall season and its many holidays, or when one simply wishes to echo the beauty of the many splendid autumn leaves. 

  • measurements: 43" length / 36"-38" bust / up to 36" waist / 14" shoulder / 9" sleeve
  • fabric: feels like silk and taffeta
  • condition: excellent vintage condition

Fit Notes & Other Info

  • The fabric of the body has little to no stretch, though the waist does. 
  • The silhouette has a slight hourglass shape, though because of the smocked waist, can fit loosely. 
  • We recommend this to those who fill out the measurements completely and those who are under the measurements and like a more boxy, shift silhouette.

Sustainable Clothing Care

From over a decade's worth of experience as a vintage clothing seller and collector, we are sharing some general care and laundering advice gleaned from women of the past. Practicing these "vintage" methods is another way to be more sustainable.

  • Wear a slip with your garments to keep your garments cleaner longer (in most cases it takes much less water/resources to launder a slip than it does a garment)
  • Wear your garments more than once before laundering
  • Use cold water to launder your garments, hot water can deconstruct the fibers of your garments more and also can cause shrinkage.
  • If using a machine, only wash full loads of laundry
  • Hang garments to dry (every Adored Vintage girl loves seeing clothes on a line!) Dryers can really be rough on your garments (that lint trap is literally bits of your clothes as it slowly falls apart!)
  • Spot clean garments immediately
  • Hand wash your clothing as often as possible.
  • Learn simple repair and mend skills to increase the longevity of your garments.
