MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →shoulder to shoulder: 15.5 inches →bust: 32 inches →waist: 26 inches →hips: 36 inches →length: 55 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: Small
CONDITION: Good vintage condition with a few flaws to note. There has been some beading loss on the illusion back; everything that was loose was secured, but it should be handled with care. There's a few light pulls, as is typical with this fabric; the worst is right where the neckline meets, as pictured. There is a bit of age staining on the illusion, mostly hidden by beads. The skirt has some color bleed, likely from wearing the dress in wet conditions, also pictured. All together, this is a great chance to own a 1940s gown that presents beautifully for a very reasonable price if these flaws do not bother you! Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
COLOR: Black with beige illusion and black beading
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Feels like a rayon jersey. Dry clean only.
