Lovely vintage 1940s 40s dress.

✧ by C.H.D. Robbins -- early American label
✧ bark brown silk with white leaf print
✧ taffeta sash + collar
✧ skirt lined in silky acetate
✧ long hip swag can be tied into a dramatic bow or left free to dangle
✧ origami kick pleats at the sides of the skirt
✧ light shoulder pads for shape
✧ belt loops (no belt)
✧ fastens up the side with a covered metal zipper

What a deeply wonderful dress this is! I adore the neutral color pallete combined with the dramatic bow and the whimsical leaf print; it makes this dress so subtle and easy to wear, and yet so very special at the same time. It will look marvelous paired with simple heels and a classic clutch, and would be perfect to wear to a cocktail party, for a trip to the theater, to a wedding, or for any other especially special event. A sophisticated beauty that is sure to garner praise and admiration wherever you choose to wear it.

This beautiful dress was made over 60 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and very rare!!

Excellent minty vintage condition with no stains, tears, or visible mends. There is only the vaguest degree of pulling to the bust darts, and a tiny pinsized only vaguely darker spot on the bodice. Negligible degree of darkening to the leaves under the arms -- not noticeable without looking for it. Otherwise this dress is just about perfect! It has been freshly drycleaned and is ready to wear.
