Classic 40's structuring make this simple dress utterly stunning!
Collared neckline on a fitted bodice with short sleeves.
Loop-fastening buttons down the centre front. The top 5 are functioning.
The top layer of this dress is a semi-sheer polyester then there is a fitted lining, with thin straps, underneath. It is fitted via a loop at the shoulders and down the zip sides.
Comes with a matching 'scarf' or 'waist tie'. I have pictured the dress with it used as both, and without it completely. 
Centre back zip fastening. Pictured open to show the collar.
Label has been cut off, I recommend for a 10/12 based on the waist (bust runs generous).
Bust- 38". Waist- 29". Hips- 41". Length from underarm- 42".
I have little inklings this is a Collectif piece but I cannot find proof and have priced it as non-branded.
Preloved but in excellent condition. There are two very small clumps of thread ends on the waist band which I assume is a cut off waist tie.
