Lovely and feminine vintage 1940s 40s dress.

✧ custom made -- one of a kind!
✧ palest cream colored fabric with an overall grey art deco floral print
✧ tight pintucks at the neckline for beauty
✧ fully gored skirt for swing + shape
✧ fastens up the front with a covered metal zipper

This dress is deeply pretty and wonderfully special. The soft colors work so beautifully together, that you will look like a lady from out of a children’s picture book everytime you put it on! It will be marvelous worn with flats for afternoons traipsing about town, for tea with friends, or for lunchtime trysts; and it will be gorgeous worn with a pair of your highest pumps and a dab of your reddest rouge for romantic evenings out, for springtime cocktail fêtes, and of course for summer weddings. A wonderful dress for a wonderful girl!

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 / minty vintage condition with no stains, tears, or noticeable mends. There is a single small area of thinning in the fabric at the left sleeve and only the vaguest tiniest bit of darkening, neither of which are at all noticeable unless diligently searched for. One half inch long mend at the waist in a slightly darker shade of thread that really isn’t at all noticeable. Some very slight fading of the grey across the back of the shoulders, that is so subtle that I really think it takes an expert and critical eye to notice it. All in all, this dress is in PHENOMENAL almost perfect condition -- I just like to be super duper thorough. ;)
