1940s Heavy Navy Blue Linen Tea Dress by Susan Small UK 12-14
A wonderful original 1940s heavy linen dress by Susan Small in navy blue. The dress is slightly too long in the waist for my model which means on someone it fits properly you would find the yoke lays flat and the collar fastens with a hook and eye making the dress even more exquisite. There is a belt and pockets and the back has a wide box pleat. The dress measures 36 to 38 inch chest 30 inch waist hips up to 42 inches although it hangs loose with the pleating on anyone smaller. The length from nape to hem is 44 inches and from the shoulder seam to waist 17 inches. The attention to detail on this dress is unsurpassed and of course Susan Small of the forties is highly collectable and hard to come by.

This Trifari necklace is wonderful. The pearlised hearts which are lucite are set in silver and gold tone metal with a silver-tone chain fastening and a small ball on the end of the chain.

The necklace measures 16 inches (42 cms) including the chain which would adjust the size. I have a pair of clip-on ear rings to match this necklace listed separately.
