Vintage 1940s Red Striped Cotton Halter Dress
Vintage Clothing and Kimonos are not sized the same as modern manufactured clothing. Everything sold by ThisBlueBird will include actual garment measurements in inches. When choosing an item please refer to the measurements and compare them with a similar style garment you already own. Please note the measurements are actual garment measurements and you must leave 2 to 3 inches between your actual measurements and the garment for ease of movement.
The charts on this page are here to assist you in understanding how vintage clothing and kimonos are measured and where you should measure on your body.
Super cute 1940s halter top and skirt set in bright red and aqua stripes. Halter top has white neckline with coordinating button trim. Buttons up the back. It has a couple mends that are visible on the back in last photo. The red button is a different style from the others. Skirt has front pockets with a fold over handkerchief style trim, back button and sash tie. It has been re-hemmed at some point to increase the length. Both are in good vintage condition. There are a couple tiny rust spots on the from and sash and one tiny pinhole on the front, see last photo.
