This is a really lovely semi-sheer black dress of rayon from the 1940s, most likely. Again, the details are so great, and so characteristic of the swing era. The shoulders and hip areas each have little areas of smocking and gathers, and the bodice is beautifully pleated. There is structural boning across the top of the bodice (at the neckline straight across). Side zip closure. Two thread belt loops.

Brand: None - Could be handmade

There are a couple small areas where the stitching has pulled away in either side of the hip-area smocking. No holes, stains. Near excellent vintage condition.

Shoulder to shoulder: 15"
Armpit to armpit: 18 1/2"
Waist: 15 1/2"
Hip: 23 3/4"
Bodice length (shoulder to waist): 17"
Skirt length (waist to hem): 29"
