Vintage from the 1940s

Materials

silk, silk taffeta, beaver, mink fur

Vintage 1940s gorgeous Silk Taffeta peachy-rose dress with brown mink fur trim around neck and sleeve hems. (We are pretty sure it is mink- but not positive). Fitted bias-cut bodice with scoop back, full skirt. Horsehair braiding in hem (adds fullness), also has matching mauve crinoline attached inside waist. Metal zipper at wearer's left side. Matching peachy-rose belt.

We received 2 dresses from the same estate, they are just slightly different in size. 1940s winter wedding bridesmaids?

Measurements:
Bust: measures 32" seam to seam. Best for 30-31" bust.
Waist: measures 24" seam to seam.
Sleeve Length (from neck to sleeve hem): 22". 3/4 sleeve.
Length Waist to Hem: 31"
Total Length (from top of shoulder to hem): 48"
Bodice Length (from top of shoulder to waist seam): 17"
Sweep: approx 135 total"

Condition:
Overall fantastic shape for its age. Belt has some yellowing, and is a bit stiff--needs to be handled gently. Belt has a touch of wear at holes. Belt cracks a bit when bent. Dress: scattered, barely noticeable spots on front skirt, and a 1/16" pinhole as well as 1/8" hole on front skirt. A few scattered spots on the back skirt. The beauty of this dress is that the irridescent quality of the fabric and the fullness of the skirt make the spots barely noticeable.

Sold in as-is condition.
