Item details

Vintage from the 1940s



Vintage early 1940s dress in a gorgeous fuchsia rayon crepe - this color absolutely slays, and the dress is a shape and length that can work for everything from daywear to cocktail hour. This charming number is fantastically detailed. The silhouette starts with the strongly padded shoulders, and given further power with the full length dolman sleeves. The neckline is a flattering sweetheart shape, with pleats along the curve that create draping the bodice. Decorative self-fabric buttons run from the center for the neckline to the hips. Horizontal pleats create swagged hips, and the skirt is a flared bias cut so it's flattering with wonderful movement. This babe closes with a sturdy metal zipper and has self-fabric ties to make a bow at back


Shoulders: 14"
Bust: 35-36"
Waist: 26"
Hips: 44"
Length: 43"

Label: Remnant of tag is present
Material: Rayon Crepe
Condition: Very Good minus

This dress is clean and ready to wear. There is some very mild fade at the top of the shoulders - this is so mild I almost didn't catch it. On close inspection, I notice that a previous owner closed up a few popped seams with hand-stitch. There is subtle staining at the underarms. I find no other issues to note! This dress wears beautifully.
