If you love this dramatic 1940s dress, you'll need to snag it before I change my mind! An absolutely killer cocktail dress, it uses both classic rayon crepe and a sturdy but utterly sheer mesh for the sleeves. The sleeves are a bishop style, full cut and dramatic with a fitted cuff. The shoulder and lower arm are embellished with a richly detailed soutache. The silhouette is quintessentially 40s, with strong shoulders padded shoulder, a fitted bodice and waist, and lush, cascading peplum, that falls left to right. This dress closes with a sturdy side metal zipper, and another at the back of the neck. A deadly femme fatale offering in a curve friendly size.

This dress is clean and ready to wear. The buttons on the cuffs have been moved once or twice in the past leaving little thread reminders of past placement. There is a single little snag in the rayon on the shoulder (not a hole, just a pulled fiber.) I find no other issues to note. It is sturdy and fresh.
