Incredible classic bombshell dress circa the 1940s! So film noir / femme fatale, a definite statement gown. This dress features corset boning in the bodice for ultimate shaping and support and has a low cut back. The classic halter style bodice is paneled with sheer tulle fabric in an eye catching zig zag design at front. Waist is defined, skirt is quite full and hangs slightly lower in the back. Fastens with a back metal zip and hook.

Maker > n/a, appears to have been handmade

Fabric > silk/rayon blend velvet, tulle

Size > would best fit a modern large to extra large

Bust: 44"
Waist: 32"
Hips: undefined, maximum 42"
Length (from top of bodice): 57" at back of skirt, 53" in front of skirt

Condition > very good, I have successfully mended some small seam rips and snags, as well as repaired the back zipper. Structurally this dress is in fine form and ready to wear. There are some marks at the back of the halter (at neck), as well as at the back of the dress near the base of the zipper... these appear to be tape residue marks, I'm guessing that someone wore this dress for an evening with a shawl to hide the fact the dress had been taped to fit... I tried to remove these marks but they're not budging. I have included a photo to give you an idea of what they look like. They would not show up too badly in a dark, evening environment, or you could possibly cover them with black marker... ? I didn't try this for fear of making it worse. These marks are really not a huge deal, but for the record, this dress is being sold as is.

Frequently asked questions about FancyLuckyVintage

Vintage clothing sizing differs from modern clothing sizing. I try my best to approximate what an item will fit like according to xxs-xs-s-m-l-xl-xxl but please be sure to compare your actual measurements to the measurements given and leave a little bit of extra room to work with in case you need to do some alterations for a perfect fit.
