Beautiful vintage 1940s 40s dress.

✧ custom made -- one of a kind!
✧ slinky rayon with the look + feel of sandwashed silk
✧ vibrant burgundy with blue floral pattern + blue trim
✧ cut on the bias to conform to your unique curves
✧ wrap-around puff sleeves
✧ high neckline fastens with seven covered buttons at the nape of the neck
✧ tight pintucks at the back
✧ fastens up the side with covered snaps + hooks

This dress is such a dream -- the photos truly do not do it justice! It is lightweight enough for summertime wear, but the deep burgundy color will look so marvelous worn in the fall; it is relatively rare to find this kind of dress in this condition in any other colors than black and navy blue! This dress would be wonderful to wear for evening trips to the county fair, to a romantic dinner, for a wedding, or for any other especially special and charming event. It would look gorgeous worn with T-strap shoes and a little basket purse, and the sultry color lends itself beautifully to a bit of dramatic eye makeup. The neckline is quite high and small, so you will want to double check the neck measurement; do remember that you can always have the neckline professionally made larger or lowered if the measurement might be too tight. Such a darling dress in such stunning fabric!

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: this color can vary significantly due to monitor settings; in person this dress is a true, deep, dark + vibrant burgundy.

Excellent vintage condition with no noticeable stains, and no tears or visible mends. There are a couple of darker marks, but they are so faint and blend into the fabric so well that they really are not noticeable without looking for them. A couple of the covered buttons in the back have darkened only slightly. This dress has been freshly cleaned and is ready to wear!!
