Sweetly charming 1940s 40s dress.

✧ iridescent sequins + crystal beads over the front of the bodice
✧ darling sweetheart neckline + sleeveless cut

This sweet floral dress is ever so charming -- it will make you feel like a dainty 1940s fairy princess every time you slip it on! Perfect with fancy flats or a pair of your highest heels for a day of dress up, a photo shoot, or for any especially special event (where you will be able to treat the dress with care). So charming, and so so unique!

Good but delicate vintage condition with a number of flaws. Two of the front seams on the bodice have been let out, and there is a noticeable mend and pinpricks where the thread was on each side. A seam on top of the left shoulder is coming loose, but it does not go all the way through and would be an easy fix. There is some light sequin loss, which is not immediately apparent, but may or may not continue. One small faint spot on the front of the bodice that blends into the pattern incredibly well. The thread on this piece has become very delicate with age, and I have noticed that it is very easy for stitches to come undone, so you will want to wear this dress with care or have the seams reinforced with new thread. The bodice is lined in stiff fabric, which is not a condition issue, but I thought that I would mention that you will want to wear this dress with a slip for comfort. This piece is being sold AS IS, and would best be used for dress up, for photo shoots, or for careful and considerate wear only. This lovely dress still has a lot of love to give, and has been priced with both its flaws and its virtues in mind. :)
