Delicious 1940s black crepe day dress featuring short sleeves, collared neckline, ribbon accent on bust, delectable waist darts and a full, flowing skirt. To die for draping and the movement on the skirt is just divine! Skirt lined, bodice unlined, back zip closure.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →shoulder to shoulder: 15 inches →bust: 34 inches →waist: 24 inches →hips: free →length: 47 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: XX-Small; fits the waist but won't zip over bust of my size 4 mannequin
CONDITION: Very good vintage condition with a few minor flaws to note. There is a light, even and overall sun fade that's a bit more noticeable in the bodice because it is unlined. There is light staining in the underarms that is mostly hidden by the dolman-like cut of the sleeve and may continue to remove with further dry cleaning (see last photo, I raised the contrast very high so you could see more clearly). There's a few age spots here and there, as well as a teeny moth nibble on the back left shoulder. Because these dresses are so desirable and often expensive, I decided to offer this dress in its current, lovely & wearable condition at a lower cost. 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.
