April Cornell Vintage - Lovely Deep Periwinkle Blue Rayon Crepe - 90s Does 40s Dress - Cottagecore - Back Tabs - Adjustable - Plus Size

Sorry, this item has sold.

This lovely dress has a vintage print of flowers and leaves in ivory and ecru tones on deep periwinkle blue rayon crepe, with April's classic front-button, collared, adjustable-back 1940's-inspired style. From April Cornell's plus size collection, "April Too", this is marked OS for "one size". So pretty and feminine and the style is classic--it's remained stylish for decades! This is the high quality, beautiful rayon crepe that April originally used in her dresses back in the day and which you don't find in her current collections anymore--it's "old school" lasting quality that wears well, which is why collectors just love her vintage dresses! Beautifully made with lovely details such as a vintage-style collar, raised waistline, and two back tabs that you can button several ways to cinch in further (see photos) Excellent vintage condition. Such a timeless, beautiful and wearable vintage style, with a soft line that clings to the body-very vintage 30's/40's.

IMPORTANT: PLEASE, please be sure to read ALL of the description especially the measurements and condition, and examine ALL the photos, BEFORE asking questions; and do be absolutely positive this piece will fit your requirements, as there are no refunds or returns. I'm a degreed and experienced textile scientist/antique garment restorer and seamstress, and I very, very carefully note any and all condition issues or repairs to every piece of antique/vintage clothing that I'm selling, so I can't stress enough that even if they're in pristine condition, remember they are all decades old and NOT newly-made clothing, so if you desire modern perfection please don't purchase vintage! I don't do layaways or take offers, so please don't ask, thank you. Jewelry/accessories/props in photos are not included and not for sale.

I love antique and vintage clothing and have collected it for years, as well as having a longtime design career including doing costume & restoration work for major movie studios and museums....I've translated that love to my own contemporary creations as well as now offering some choice pieces of my extremely large collection of vintage and antique beauties.

Marked OS for one size, please go by the measurements below-- Vintage April Cornell dresses, especially her April Too dresses, are often generously sized, but they are not generally supposed to be tight-fitting.
Bust: dress measures 50" pit to pit, fits up to about 46", larger than that will be too snug in my opinion.
Raised waist also measures 50" across, fits up to 46" or so. Can be made significantly smaller by crossing and buttoning the back tabs.(see photo)
Length is approx 53" from shoulder to hem while on the hanger; this measurement will be a little shorter on a human figure; the dress fits and drapes SO beautifully on the body as you can see. Mannequin is a modern size 6/8 (36-26-36)
Condition: I can find no flaws on this dress; it is freshly cleaned, no spots, stains, rips, holes or damages, just gorgeous! Labels are intact, with the designer's own April Cornell "April Too" tag.

Please make sure this will suit you as to measurements and style before you purchase; I don't do alterations or accept returns.....Also, please be sure to read my shop policies/shipping info in full before you purchase (click on "policies" on my main shop page).
