Glossy Postwar 1940s Black Satin Shirtwaist Dress XS


  • Product Description

      Vintage 1940s shirtwaist dress in a fabulously glossy black rayon celanese satin. This dress walks the perfect sartorial line between day dress and cocktail attire, functioning seamlessly as either. Matching buttons close the shirt waist bodice. A small collar stands at the neck, the short sleeves are cuffed. The skirt is fully, but not yet New-Look full. It closes on the side with a glossy metal zipper. 


      This was, as shown, frankly too small on my size 6 dress form. It made it, but really wants to be on a size 2 or so.

      Bust: 33"
      Waist: 25.5"
      Hips: 48"
      Length: 43"

      Label: None Present
      Material: Rayon Satin
      Condition: Very Good minus

      This dress is clean and ready to wear. There are some small scuffed marks on the satin here and there, nothing significant. I find no other issues to note!
