Femme Fatale Late 1940s Draped Satin Cocktail Dress with Draped Back


  • Product Description

      A sultry late 1940s dress of lustrous, liquid black satin, this was always meant for a femme fatale. This piece shows nothing, but suggests an awful lot. The neckline is high - a mock turtle neck, really. The sleeves are short, draped, with darts on the top to create their specific shape. The internal skirt is slim, sleek. The satin is turned the opposite direction of that on the outer skirt and the bodice, for a contrast look when the light hits it. The exterior skirt wraps around the body, snapping along the waist at front, offering a truly lush, weighted drape at the back. The dress closes on the the side with a sturdy metal zipper. 


      Bust: 39"
      Waist: 28"
      Hips: 40"
      Length: 47.5"

      Label: None Present 
      Material: Rayon-Celanese Charmeuse Satin
      Condition: Good, as is

      This dress is clean and ready to to wear. As you can see, if you look at the photos, there's some scuffs and mars to the satin on the front of the bodice, front right of the outer skirt and lower front of the main skirt. Two on the center of the bodice were little scuffs that broke the fibers, so I've interfaced them. Not every flaw shows in every light/angle, and its overall a good dress for dark cocktail bars. Priced with flaws in mind.
