This chic 1940s dress is made with a solid black rayon crepe skirt paired with a bright, fun silk bodice, printed in springy hues - not quite pastels. Brush strokes of purple and fuchsia, yellow and baby blue and lime green make a painted black behind a "net" of black lines. The neckline is a v, gathered with the attached ties to a bow. The skirt is four notched tiers at the front, but a solid panel at back. The dress is artsy and fun, with a summery feel that makes this perfect for a warm weather First Thursday. It closes on the side with a metal zipper.

This dress has very gently hand laundered and ozoned to clear away old cigarette smell. I believe I've got it all. The back of the neck has frayed in the past, and been "fixed" with a hand stitch that is somewhat exposed, although if you hair is down it wouldn't be noticed, and even with hair up, it IS just the back of the neck. There's also some hand stitches under the right arm, and I interfaced two holes that I think are due to an old price tag that was there a long time. I have restitched the hem, and patched one 1/2" long cut or narrow moth chew in the bottom tier at the front. The dress is not perfect, but it wears beautifully.
