Description

A glamorous black rayon dress from the 1940s which is perfect for the taller lady today.

The faux wrap bodice has a deep v front and flattering draping. Down the front edges is a border of trapunto quilting. This is mirrored with a short placket on the hip which has the sane effect. From this placket fall a swag of knife pleats.

At the back of the skirt is an elegant sunray pleat.

The dress has a side metal zip and a short zip at the back of the neck. There are narrow belt loops, but the belt is missing. The one shown is not included, it is from another dress and a smaller size.

Size tag 44 in the back of the neck

The dress is in excellent condition with no rips or stains. The seams and the colour are strong.

There is a small hole that has been patched. It is in a pleat so invisible when worn.

There are a couple of tiny pulls if you search them out.

It is clean, but there is a slight musty smell from storage. It needs a couple of nights on the washing line, which I would have done, but it keeps raining!!!!!

Measurements taken laid flat

17.5 inches across the shoulders
16 inches across the waist (just, this is pulled tight)
22 inches across the hips
19.5 inches shoulder to waist (can be worn blousy)
29.5 inches waist to hem
