Vintage 1940s gown of cold rayon is truly elegant in a bold but finely detailed paisley floral. Sleek and liquid, the rayon is vibrant with fire red, green, black, yellow and sky blue. The dress is deeply darted to the waist, allowing for extra room at the bust, and a flatteringly sleek silhouette through the midsection. At front, a pleated drape crosses from the left shoulder to the right waist, or it can be worn tossed over the right shoulder. The back has an additional scooping drape that gives the dress dimension. This beauty closes with a sturdy metal zipper.
Bust: 38" -42"
*This dress is 16" across the back at the bust, but with the deep draping can be up to 26" across the front. This will work for about a 38" bust, to someone with a larger cup size, measuring up to 42" around.

This dress is clean and ready to wear. The zipper pull was a two part at one point, and the second half of the dangling pull is lost to time - however, there's still enough to easily open and close it. There is the tiniest bit of strain at the top of the zipper. I find no other else to note - the dress is clean, vibrant and fresh.
