Stunning 1940's silk chiffon lavender or lilac gown with wonderful tinted machine made lace. I think this was a dress designed by a company as a white tag has been cut out by the original owner. The hem is a beautiful graduated cut and the belt is magic! Could be great for an event or as a non white wedding alternative. Has thicker old style metal hooks on the belt as well as the tie. Slips over the head with a thin waist feature no zipper. Soft satin/silk ribbon details. The lace has nuances of color change in terms of lilacs- the lace construction is similar to machine made lace that I have seen on 30s dresses. Belt has older hooks.

Fit the 8 mannequin well, seems as if it has some but see measurements as bust etc will factor in as well as style.

Bust across is about 34.5" so works on a 34 but billowy so some room.
Waist 26-26.5 natural stretches up to 31.5" max
Sleeve about 25 but has a cuff which pulls it up a little when buttoned to create the volume so falls on at 24"
Length at longest point of hem as it falls in a v : 4ft 6"

BELT: Hooks at about a 30" waist but hooks could be moved to a 29 after that you would have to have someone alter the ending ribbon area which could be done.

Condition: Very Good- no pulls I see maybe one or two small ones, no holes. Has been cleaned professionally, but has a few very slightly darker marks in the chiffon which do not show when worn and are light enough that they are not easily seen.
