Classic Old Hollywood elegance. Fantastic late 1930s or early 1940s dress alternates satin backed crepe and crepe backed satin to create texture. Red taffeta sash shirred in three vertical lines in the back and ties on the side in a bow or knot with a long trail of color. Shirring at shoulders in front and back. Uniquely cut sleeves are gathered at the shoulder adding fullness. Closes with metal side zipper.


I do not pin clothing on models, but prefer instead to show you my garments on people they actually fit. Kristen's measurements are 35.5"-27"-41" and she stands 5'11 tall. This dress was roomy on her, but the cut can compliment a variety of sizes.

-Bust: Up to 40"
-Waist: Up to 30"
-Hip: Up to 43"
-Sleeve Length: 6"
-Shoulder to Waist: 17"
-Shoulder to Shoulder: 18.5"
-Length from waist to hem: 40"
-Skirt Sweep: 90"


Very Good condition rating a 9 out of 10. Aside from a few small snags in the fabric, there are no flaws to note. This dress is fresh from the dry cleaners and is ready to wear. It will need to be steamed upon arrival. Don't have a steamer? Try hanging this dress in the bathroom while you take a hot shower. That should do the trick.
