♛The Details

Photos don't do this justice! The new little black dress just might be this sublime 1940s beauty in an unexpected shade of rich mocha brown rayon. The curvy neckline is set a'glitter with faux pearls, prong-set rhinestones, and dozens upon dozens of icy clear glass seed beads. Shoulder pads, self fabric buttons to below skirt. Skirt is a classic sheath with triple sunray hip seaming and hip pockets, too.

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

♛The Measurements

About a modern size S
Bust (underarm area measured flat then doubled): 36"
Waist: 26"
Hips: to 42"
Length of bodice, shoulder to waist area: about 16"
Skirt, waist area to hem: about 29 1/2"

♛The Condition

Very good shape, sturdy. Recently dry-cleaned. The brown color has some typical mild age-related color variation, though it's not something that would be noticed under casual observation. I see some ironing shine near the cuffs of the sleeves, and some color fading under the arms. There might be about 3 of the tiniest clear glass seed beads missing near the point where the neckline joins the shoulder seam, but all the others feel tight and sturdy.
