Original Vintage 40s Navy Blue Daisy Maxi Dress
This is such a beautiful dress. You can almost see the summer fun this dress has had and I think that it is perfect for summer. The navy grosgrain is quite heavy but the thin straps will counter balance that to keep you cool.
The little cream appliqué daisies are so cute and make this dress fit in perfectly with 2 big trends this season; floral and nautical. It is fitted to the waist with an A line skirt to create a feminine silhouette. The sweetheart neckline subtly emphasises your bust to make the most of what you have.
You can't find anything quite like this on the high street so you can take pride in the fact that you own a unique garment and you'll never have the worry that someone will be wearing the same thing. This dress could be dressed down or up so you can wear it anywhere for an instant hit of summer.
It's in lovely vintage condition with no visible damage.

Terms of Sale
We are committed to the highest standards in authenticity and preparation of the vintage clothes we sell, and do our best to ensure that you won't find any unexpected problems with them.
But these are always one-off items, with non-standard sizing and around 40 to 80 years old, so only rarely will they be in mint condition.
Bearing all that in mind, we want you to be thrilled with anything you buy from us, so if you have any reason to think that it is not right, please drop us a line. We will always accept returns (14 days, and you will need to pay the return postage cost) and can either exchange for an alternative (in which case, we'll cover the cost of shipping the exchange item to you) or give a refund on the cost of the item (the shipping charge will then normally be deducted from the refund you receive).
The actual dress measurements are specified in my listing above.
A good way to check sizing is to use the measurements provided to compare against a similar dress of your own which you know fits you well.
I do give dress sizes for guidance, and just so you know, this is how I work it out:
UK size Bust in cm Waist in cm Hips in cm Euro size
8 80 - 84 62 - 66 87 - 91 36
