1940s Rayon Jersey Expandable Dress-S/M/L


Ok how cool is this?! This ‘40s dress looks like a regular lovely rayon frock but on closer inspection, it has two sets of snaps for an expandable waist effect! Likely originally designed as a maternity dress but also ideal for when you’ve gained or lost a few pounds or just want more room after an extra large meal! Bodice of the dress is done in rayon jersey with a red, purple, and green floral print, short sleeves, and gathered neckline with drawstring tie. Skirt is done in black rayon crepe with a tie back sash at the waist, semi-full shape, and matching jersey faux pocket flaps. No closures other than the snaps, slips easily over the head. Unlined.
