TRUE VINTAGE SHEER SUMMER DRESS IN RAINBOW SHERBET COLORS

This dress is so pretty and fun to wear.  When I found it, the original belt was missing, as is often the case, but because of all the multi-colors, not difficult to find one that works.

The style is Forties or late Thirties, because it had short sleeves with a bit of puff at the shoulder, but I suspect it may not be quite that old – maybe made in the early ’70’s during the ’40’s fashion craze.   I removed the sleeves because they were not particularly flattering to me and I wanted a bit more sophisticated look, though it’s very casual.  I love the bands of color, switched at the hem.

When I find a dress that has damage or is not a high-quality piece, I feel free to make some alterations to suit myself. This dress had no damage, but it’s not high-end.  Of course, I did save the sleeves and they could be re-attached at any time.  To me, that’s important with true vintage apparel – to protect its integrity and value.

This is just a cool, summery, happy frock – and one can’t have too many of those!
