1940's dress is a vintage silk velvet dress in film noir style.
This dress is soft on the eye and luscious to the touch.
Elegant and finely detailed, this dress is true black, photos have been lightened to capture details.
Shirred and ruched three quarter sleeves
Padding by shoulder creates a puff
Notched v-neck collar
Shirred by shoulders and gathered below bust to high waist
There is quite a bit of fabric for bust but no seams
A-line skirt and side zipper to close finish details.
No label and no fabric content tag, I believe this to be silk velvet but this is only an educated guess.
This dress is in excellent vintage condition, I see no holes, stains, or tears.
One small portion of the hem needs to be restitched and I see a few possible crush marks by low front but these do not detract in any way.

Measurements are approx:
12" across shoulders (30.5cm)
16" across shoulders include sleeves (40.5cm)
18" across chest (45.5cm)= 36" bust (91.5cm)
