Dress, c.1940s. Cotton, blue pinstripes on white background. White panels up sides of flared calf length skirt, pockets, v-neck with collar, buttons centre front. The collar is on top of a square yoke that extends around the shoulders. It also has revers that extend from the turn of the bodice fabric. This creates a V neck in the 1940s style. White plastic buttons close the dress down centre front. Three pleats open up from the waist on each side front, and two on each side back. The sleeves extend up from the bottom in a kimono cut, and are constructed on the top half as set-in sleeves. The two types join in the middle, and are finished with a small cuff. The skirt has ten slightly flared gores, set into the waistband with small pleats. The side gores are made of white cotton. Down centre front, the opening continues over the hips with more buttons. On each side at hip level, there is a square patch pocket cut on the bodice. Inside the back of the neck, there is a cotton tag that has embroidered in green: "This is a Colleen Brawn Reg'n Garment / Made in Canada / 5994 34."

The bodice has a pleat in each shoulder, one in each side back, and a dart at each side front. The collar has revers that extend from the centre front opening, creating a V neck. The short sleeves have a fold over cuff, and are set in. The dress opens completely down centre front with five small white plastic buttons in the bodice, and fifteen in the skirt. They each have decorative machined button holes in white fabric that extend a few centimetres more than needed. There are four gores in the skirt, two in the front and two in the back, each somewhat flared. In each side seam there is a pocket decorated with four of the same buttons as on centre front. The skirt extends to just below the knees. At the natural waistline of the dress, there is a snap closure in to hold it in place. Sitting on top, there is a thin adjustable belt with a loop at each side seam. On the right loop a white, yellow, and black paper tag hangs. It reads: "An 'Easy Living' Fabric. Corklin by Burlington. Rayon." On the back it says: "Burlington's CORKLIN is an all rayon quality fabric with the look and feel of fine linen. Here's what makes CORKLIN an easy living fabric: 1. Machine wash, 2. Drip dry, 3. If touch up required, use a dry iron on dry fabric. Burlington Mills, Burlington quality, 'Woven into the Life of America.' A member of Burlington Industries. Printed in U.S.A." On the inside back of the neck, there is a small cloth tag that reads: "Style / Size 16 1/2." The seams of the dress are finished with pinking shears, and the hems are hand finished. It has never been worn.
