This beautiful dress was made in the 1940's.
Made from black satin backed crepe, which has a fine texture to the weave, it has a cross-over bodice, long sleeves - which fasten with poppers - a pretty front drape on the skirt and features floral silk embroidery in soft lilac. It has a side metal zip.
An absolutely beautiful piece which is perfect for an evening out.
