Stunning vintage 1940s 40s dress.

✧ by Fred Perlberg Dance Original -- early American couture designer label
✧ black and green taffeta eyelet; bodice is lined in green, skirt is unlined
✧ unique circle pinwheel designs in the eyelet
✧ boning inside of the bodice for shape + support
✧ square neckline + nipped in waist
✧ gathering at waistline for added fullness to the skirt
✧ fastens up the side with a covered metal zipper

This gorgeous dress was actually designed to be a dance costume -- the skirt was left unlined in order to show off the dancer's legs! Of course, with a little slip this makes the perfect 40s party dress, with artful details and flawless construction. I just adore wearing dresses that have a bit of boning in the bodice; it will make you stand taller, look slimmer, and feel as feminine and glamorous as can be. A perfect dress for any especially special event!

This beautiful dress / dance costume is in perfect condition and was made over 60 years ago -- it is truly a treasure and very rare!!
