Wonderful red plaid fleece dress from the early 1940s. This is a war time piece that was originally deadstock but I have washed it and pulled the paper tag out to preserve it (it is included). It does not have a closure as it's meant to slip on overtop and then tie at the waist to give it shape. Still must fit within the measurements. This dress is a juniors but should fit a smaller person. (please read measurements in detail)

.
Label: small paper tag that I removed to wash to preserve it which includes "W.P.T.B" - stands for:
" The Wartime Prices and Trade Board is a former Canadian government agency, established on September 3, 1939, by the Mackenzie King government, under the authority of the War Measures Act, in the Department of Labour responsible for price controls and inflation control."
.
Measurements:
{ xsmall }
Must fit within these measurements to get on as there is only a button behind the neck but no other closures.
Bust: 34"
Waist: 27"-30"
Hips: 32"-38"
Length: 34" 
Sleeve Length: 7" 
*please not it is a juniors size so armholes are a little small but I *just* fit into it! I also personally work out regularly and am growing my arm muscles so may fit okay for someone with smaller arms.
So the underarm measurement (around the underarms) is about 14.5" around and the armhole opening at the end of the sleeve is about 8" around but could likely be opened up another .5" or you can add a panel underneath to open it up a little more. 
.
Condition:
really great vintage condition with minor signs of wear - (hem appears to be a little uneven) - the apron tie belt has been cut off on the sides (not sure why as it is deadstock) subtle fade. Pockets don’t sit evenly. sold as is.
