Lovely and sophisticated 1940s dress.

✧ custom made - one of a kind!! 
✧ vibrant dark navy blue taffeta with a subtle sheen
✧ short matching sash for knotting at the waist
✧ broadly pleated skirt
✧ v-neckline + dramatic split collar
✧ nipped in waist + full circle skirt
✧ fastens up the side with a metal zipper

This dress is oh so very, very classic and feminine; the taffeta creates the most satisfying rustling sound against your legs as you move and dance, and will make you feel just as ladylike as can be. Both glamorous and straightforward, the simplicity of this dress lends itself to a variety of looks, and will be a snap to style in almost any way you wish. I love it with the matching sash, but I love it just as much -- if not more -- with a little contrasting belt as I’ve shown it in some of the photos. Such a wonderful piece, and so perfect for all of your especially special events!

This dress was custom made over 60 years ago -- it is truly a treasure and one of a kind! There is not another one like it in all the world!!

please note: the dress was photographed over a crinoline for extra fullness. belt is not included.

Excellent vintage condition with no stains, tears, or visible mends. There are two slightly darkened spots on the top back of the dress, but they are so incredibly faint that they wouldn’t even show up in the photos, and, due to the dark color and sheen of the dress, are essentially unnoticeable. Just wonderful!
