1940s / early 1950s SWING DRESS. Any Lindy Hoppers out there???!

Amazing periwinkle lace over purple poly satin with tule skirt and bust details. There is a gorgeous sequin detail at the v-neckline and between the tule and lace at the front of the skirt. Wow!
Dress features, cap sleeves, small periwinkle shoulder pads and a metal periwinkle blue Glider brand zipper down the left side.

Federal Model

44.5" top of shoulder to hemline
38" bust
31" waist
free hip

Excellent vintage condition! There are tears in the periwinkle layer of lace. Because of the color scheme you could get away without mending these, however this would roughly cost $20 for an seamstress to mend, though prices vary from city to city. Belt is missing. Label should be re-stitched.

This has been sitting in the hope chest of a lovely lovely collector in Vancouver, BC.

Let me know if you have questions, thanks for looking.
