Avant garde vintage 1940s 40s dress.

✧ custom made -- one of a kind!
✧ natural colored linen with a beautiful texture + slight stretch
✧ asymmetrical warp around neckline with small button
✧ fastens up the front with five large marbeled brown buttons + a hidden snap
✧ hidden pocket at right hip
✧ light shoulder pads for shape

Sophisticated, modern, and incredibly chic, this dress is the epitome of wearable vintage. Gorgeous with a pair of pin thin heels and a simple clutch, it would be perfect to wear to the office, to a business luncheon, for day trips about town, or as your go to polished-yet-practical dress on any vacation. I envision it worn with large sunglasses and sleek hair, although of course it could be made to look more retro with some victory rolls and a pair of brightly colored pumps. A really phenomenal dress that is sure to be a wardrobe staple!

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!!
