This is such a beautiful dress.
Made in the 1940s from inky black crepe, it is a longer line dress which sits well below the knee and is perfect for a 1940s dance as the fabric has wonderful drape and the skirt has gorgeous shaping which really flows as you move. The bodice is close fitting and the skirt has pockets! The pocket edges are trimmed with lipstick red velvet which has a clear paste detail, which is replicated on the left bodice of the dress.
This will best fit up to a 37-28-38 but to ensure it will fit you properly please compare the measurements below to a similar garment you already own;
- flat bust 19.5
- flat waist 14.5"
- flat hip 20.5"
- underarm sleeve length 12"
- shoulders between sleeves 15"
- neck to waist 16"
- neck to hem 49"
Excellent. It looks to have been little worn and the only point to note is two faint marks on one cuff.
