There was a pretty sharp change in fashion after WWII so I'm not really sure how well it would work. There was fabric rationing during the war and being frugal was a way of showing patriotism so probably a really full skirt is not the best for Captain America. I think the shoulders are also different, the 40s have really boxy padded shoulders--so maybe if you still want to wear the dress you can add shoulderpads and that will help it look right?
