Fantastic 1940s Day Dress of Coral Rayon Crepe with Sawtooth Peplum


  • Product Description

      A striking 1940s dress in saturated rayon crepe. The color is, in my experience a bit hard to find in 40s pieces, and is one of only handful of coral items from the decade I've had. There is shirring at the neckline, which works with the darts to create a bit of drape across the bodice. The short, draped sleeves are finished with a sawtooth edge, matching the finish of the pointed peplum. The peplum is shirred, giving it ruffled dimension. The skirt is a flattering, slightly flared four-gore style. The dress closes with a sturdy metal zipper, and comes with the original, self-fabric belt. 

      My mannequin photos are under saturated, the modeled photo is accurate.

      This dress is clean and ready to be worn. The buckle of the belt has some fraying, and there's a couple breaks to the backing. The neckline has been opened in the past and closed up again.  There are four *teeny teeny tiny* pin-tip spots in the skirt, and a small snag to the crepe at the far left side of the bodice. The dress is striking and wears beautifully. I find no other issues to note!
