Very pretty vintage 1940's dress in semi-sheer, cocoa-colored fabric.

No fabric label, but probably rayon. It has an unusual texture, a pit puckered, shaped into sqares, which vary from semi-sheer to opaque.

Note the wide collar. The center of the top of the shoulders is pleated to add just a bit more interest to the collar front. A lace inset keeps the neckline from being immodestly low:)

No maker's label. Possibly home-sewn.

Closes up the side with a metal zipper.

Bust measures 40", waist 32". Hips are free, due to the fullness of the skirt. The bodice is 17" from top of shoulder to waist and skirt is 28" from waist to hem.

Very good condition, although I noticed that it appears the seams under the sleeves have been reinforced and the seamstress used white machine-stitched thread, which does not match the fabric. The hem is also done this way, as if the length was once shortened. Not overly noticeable and does not detract from the wearablilty of the dress.
