♛The Details

SO well-done! This retro 1940s style dress threw me for a loop...when I purchased it during a Boston, Mass dealer buy-out, I was sure it was older. Now that I'm home, careful inspection of some of the inner seams, the back zipper, and the label have convinced me it's a 1980s dress put out by this venerable old clothing company.

Slinky, shimmery rayon or rayon/acetate blend with superior draping qualities. Jet black with novelty print of tiny deco scarlet red bows. It was difficult to get it to look right on my dress form as she has no arms, but on a real figure it's going to be a knock-out. A shirred bodice with dolman-cut sleeves, bust shelf seaming, fitted waist, and a slim-fitting skirt with a super-flirty ruffled double-peplum and a back slit. Closes up back with an older nylon Talon zipper.

Get the 1940s femme fatale look without paying a high price or worrying about wardrobe malfunctions; this dress is as sturdy as the day it was made!

Designer label is R&K Originals.

All accessories (belts, jewelry, crinolines, pins, etc.) are for style inspiration only unless indicated.
