Description

The lovely look of the forties is what this dress is all about. The last gasp of the era when women took dressing seriously and had different dresses for different occasions. How civilized.

This is a dress that would have been worn to a cocktail or dinner party and would have been considered semi formal. It could have been worn for a special occasion like someone's wedding, or an anniversary party. It is fun to consider the possibilities of where it was worn, and the occasions it celebrated.

It is an ecru chantilly lace over a peach acetate lining. The lace lets the peachiness shine through, and accents it with a delicate line of peach silk tubing at the waist, and a fabulous large bow/sash on the left hip, that is made from a silk organza over a peach fabric. It really sets it apart from the crowd.
There is a little kick pleat at the back .
The sleeves are short and cap style, the neckline rounded to frame a accenting necklace.
It is in amazingly good condition. Not mends, holes, flaws, stains.

There is no label.

The measurements are:
shoulder to shoulder, 16 inches
bust: 38 inches
waist 30 inches
hips, 42 inches.
Length from waist:28 inches
length to waist 17 inches
bow size: width long end 8 inches, width short end 10 inches...length long end 15 to point. length sort end 7.5 inches.
Width around hem, pleat open 24.5
All measurements taken flat.

What goes around comes around.
Love of quality and beauty from the past is happiness.
