1940s Franklin Chicago Day Dress with Wired Collar and PocketsRegular price £225.00 Save £-225.00
I truly extraordinary example of 1940s fashion, this American vintage dress features all the hallmarks of the aesthetic of its time - shoulder pads to square the silhouette, an elegant neckline - plus an unusual structured collar, 'boned' with wire to hold its shape. This wiring feature is also on the piece's pockets, of which it has two on the front of the skirt, which also has one generous pleat detail.
Fabric is viscose, and length is just above the ankle. This is an American piece (label is Franklin, Chicago), hence the fashionable print, unusual wiring detail, and longer length.
Best fit is UK size 8.
