Vintage 40s dress in red velvet and fur trim. Features a fitted bodice with darts and princess seams while the three-quarters length sleeves are gently ruched and finished with a small, narrow cuff in self fabric. The drop V waistline adds great elegance, while the long, full skirt has smashing twirling potential! It zips up the back and is unlined. No tags, so likely custom made. This is an iconic dress that will steer all eyes to the sumptuous Lady In Red.

brand: no tag
material: velvet, mink
size on tag: none

-All measurements are taken from the front with the garment fastened. Please take stretch into account.

Condition: Good, wearable, but AS IS. The underarm areas had tears that have been carefully mended by an expert tailor, but if you look very closely, you can see the repair stitching. This is only problem if you anticipate spending the evening waving your arms in the air. The hemline is also dingy and the whole thing will likely perk up with a decent dry clean. None of these imperfections are noticeable when dress is worn, but item priced accordingly.
