1940s Blue Floral Dress
Beautiful vintage dress by Heiress
A pretty 1940s Blue Floral Dress by Heiress.
Probably made from rayon this vintage dress by Heiress may be 1940s or, possibly, 1950s. The fabric has a lovely floral design with grey, light blue and dark blue flowers. The bodice has two small pockets on the front and is secured by three gorgeous buttons at the front. There is a metal zip to the side. The dress fits over the hips and flares out into very loose pleats. I have photographed this vintage beauty with a black belt due to the dress form being a little too small for the dress but the original fabric belt is intact and you can see this in the second photo – along with more of the seamed detail on the skirt area. The three-quarter length sleeves have elegant turn-up cuffs.
Approx size – all measurements are taken with the dress laid out flat and across the back of the frock. To be sure it will fit you, please choose a similar item from your wardrobe and measure flat.
Bust 38-39 inches (underarm to underarm across the back)
Waist 31-32 inches
Hips 38-40 inches

The belt measures 43 inches in length from end to end.
Condition: This vintage beauty is in lovely condition with its buttons, belt loops and original fabric belt all present and correct. The plastic backing on the reverse of the belt is cracking in a couple of places but I wouldn’t let that deter you. The fabric front of the belt looks fine. None of the plastic coating around the holes in the belt has worn away which I might expect with a dress of this age. The “Heiress” label on the inside of the collar is a little marked and some stitches have come away so if you don’t want to lose this label you may want to tighten them a little. I can find no other issues with this beautiful dress. She’s just gorgeous!
