Vintage 40's Dress Gorgeous Green Sheen Off Shoulder 40's/50's Cocktail Prom Rockabilly Starlet Dress

This fabric is so mesmerizing! The green rayon has a sheen which is a kind of mauve-gives a pearlized effect which was so modern in it's time!

The structure is basically a strapless gown and a-line full skirt, though not so full as some 50's pieces. There is a shoulder capelet attached on each side of the neckline, which simply slips over the head. I have shown it here with a crinoline under (not included). It has a layered décolletage with 2 pointy peaks in front of small horizontal pleats. It has 2 stays built in the bodice in the back and the front of the bodice is lined with a sheer white jersey chiffon-the rest of the gown is unlined.

It is quite small. Shown here on a body form with 34" bust and 27" waist. There is a side zip and I was unable to close it on this form. The measurements flat are: waist: 25", bust: 34", hips up to 36"-length from waist to hem is 31.5". I believe that the hemline is meant to brush the ankles for a more formal cocktail dress/ball gown. Tag says "Donald Original" and size 12(ha ha!) today it would be a size 2.

In very good vintage condition except for slight underarm staining(will provide photos)
