Sheer 1940s Black Day Dress, Prim and Alluring with Lace Insets


  • Product Description

      This vintage 1940s dress is romantic creation in sheer black rayon. Made more or less daring by whatever underpinnings you choose to pair under it, the cut is almost innocent - prim even, with a high neckline and softly pleated skirt. The sleeves are quite full - they aren't shown to their best advantage here, and the mannequin arms are too slim, but these are best worn lantern style, with the cuff just under the elbow, accenting the soft fullness. The sleeves and neckline feature an open, leaf motif lace. The original belt is still present. This charmer closes with a side metal zipper, and buttons up the back of the neck. 


      Shoulders: 15"
      Bust: 38"
      Waist: 29"
      Hips: 49"
      Length: 42"

      Label: None present, likely homemade.
      Material: Rayon Chiffon (may be a rayon silk blend)
      Condition: Very Good minus

      This garment is clean and ready to wear. There is a single tiny pinhole in the right sleeve. I find no other issues to note!
