Gorgeous 1940s Woven Day Dress in Subtle London Fog Purple


  • Product Description

      Vintage 1940s dress in a unique hue, an earl-grey color that is a bit purple, a big neutral, pink in some lights or taupe. It's a woven rayon blend with very defined texture. The shoulders are bold padded, and the bodice is gathered around piping, finished off with a piping bow. Asymmetric darts from each hip have gathers that create a sweeping drape. The dress closes up the side with a sturdy metal zipper.

      The hue of this dress is prettier in person, and did not photograph well.


      Shoulders: 17"
      Bust: 36"-38"
      Waist: 27" - snug 28"
      Hips: 48"
      Length: 42.5"

      Label: None Present
      Material: Rayon Blend
      Condition: Good plus, wearable as is

      This dress is clean and ready to wear. The color, like so many purples, wasn't stable and has fade along the sleeves and shoulders, and there's inconsistency to the hue throughout - however, the overall impression is that purple grey. There's two faint spots on the back of the skirt. This dress presents nicely when worn, and it's been priced with color in mind. There is nothing else to note.
