Darling vintage 1940s 40s dress.

✧ custom made -- one of a kind!
✧ vibrant navy blue sheer fabric with a circles + diamonds woven pattern
✧ layered art deco collar
✧ three large buttons with rhinestone centers
✧ fully gored skirt made from eighteen fabric panels
✧ belt loops + cuffed sleeves
✧ fastens up the side with a covered metal zipper

What a deeply darling dress this is! As it is quite sheer, it will need to be worn with a slip, and will look marvelous with simple flats and a little cap for day, or with a pair of your highest pumps and a dab of your reddest rouge for evenings out. Perfect for casual daytime weddings, for strolls about town, for first dates, or for any other especially sweet and precious event. So pretty, and so flattering, too!

This beautiful dress was custom made over 60 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and one of a kind! There is not another one like it in all the world!!

please note: the slip was used for styling purposes only, and is not included.
