Vintage 1940s day dress in a bold red rayon crepe with incredible drape. This dress is absolutely fantastic on the body, a beautifully structured day time piece. The bodice is fitted with a high neckline. The sleeves are full length. Both the bodice and upper hips are asymmetrically pintucked, each edged with eleven self-fabric buttons. The fit is perfect and flattering - a well tailored garment. It closes with a metal side zipper and short zipper at the back of the neck.

This smart piece is freshly dry cleaned and ready to worn. My steamer caused a small and very subtle water mark on the bodice, this should clean out with a second dry clean. There is one more on the skirt, a narrow drip - same story, I had just already dry cleaned and don't want to do it again. There is a small scratch to the fabric at the lower back of the skirt. This does not detract from the presentation of the piece whatsoever. I find nothing else to note.
