Sweet as pie 1940s 40s dress.

✧ custom made -- one of a kind!
✧ slightly sheer textured knit; possibly a rayon weave
✧ two double velvet bows at the neckline
✧ fastens up the front with a toggle metal zipper
✧ matching belt
✧ sweet pockets at the hips
✧ gored skirt for swing + shape

This dress is too darling for words! Classic and springy, and in perfect condition, this is a piece that will be so easy to slip on with a pair of flats for day, or to dress up with a flashy pair of pumps and a flower in your curls for night. It would be perfect for an afternoon about town, for brunch with friends, for a tea date with Prince Charming, or for any other especially special or especially dear event. Charming, flirty, and as pretty as a dress could ever hope to be!

This beautiful dress was custom made over 60 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and one of a kind! There is not another one like it in all the world!!

Excellent vintage condition with no stains, tears, or visible mends. Just perfect!! The only 'flaw' that I could find is that the flowers appear just ever so vaguely faded under the arms, but there is absolutely no fading or discoloration to the fabric. In otherwise absolutely mint condition!!
