1940s Dress. Kathy's Mom.

Another Lovely dress my friend Kathy allowed me to showcase here. This dress was worn and possibly handmade by her mother in the 1940s. I hope soon to post a little more about her- she was a real beauty who was often called on to model back in the day; I'll ask Kathy to share a little about her.

Meanwhile, here is a dress she wore, and if I am not mistaken, for some sort of beauty pageant.

Note The Sleeves: I love how they were sewn and pleated to maintain their fullness.

  1. Gorgeous, I love the bust detail and pretty much the whole dress.

    Lovely find, may it be forever treasured as it should, boy do I love the 1940's.
