*Please excuse the pix - I should have used a clothespin to make this fit my size 4-6 model; as you can see, it is a couple sizes too large for her. ALSO, we have it on so that zipper is on left side, but it looks like it could be worn either way around - seems to have a sweetheard bodice in back.

UNBELIEVABLY simple yet elegant all in once. Fully lined in a blue satiny fabric with spaghetti straps for illusion lace bodice, this amazing 40s swing dress has fabulous sheer lace flutter sleeves with scalloped edges. Defined waistline has loops but no belt; followed by the perfect skirt portion which manages to show off the hips while then flaring out for lots of volume and swing at the bottom. Zips up left side of bodice with metal zipper. Dress has a couple of tears in lace on one shoulder which is an easy fix with needle and thread if you can sew AND the holes occurred at a fitting for a feature film now under production by Colin Furth and starring Emily Blunt - so they aren't just ordinary holes :-) ; otherwise, it is in excellent condition, clean and ready to wear.
