You've got Degas prints on the way and an old paid of practice shoes tucked in a box - why not relive your lessons in this sleek rayon frock? Vintage 1940s dress is an as-is treasure from a collection of beauties. A mid-40s style, it's a pastel yellow with black line illustrations of ballet dancers. The waist is ruched black acetate. The peplum is soft and flattering, layered at the center front. The dress closes with a metal zipper on the side. This is as-is, please read the condition comments.
Label: None Present
Condition: Fair plus, wearable and as-is
This dress can be worn but has some cosmetic and other flaws. There are minor points of color transfer in the print. There is a discolored area at the center front of the peplum on the exterior layer. (If you sew, you could open the waist, and put the left hand side of the peplum on the exterior.) The front of the bodice has four tiny pintip holes, and the rear has two on the back left shoulder. The mid back has a 1/4" frayed hole. The peplum is lined with net, which is very worn, with holes and frays. There's 3" where the net is exposed on one edge. There are a few tiny, scattered spots in the skirt. There is another 1/4" hole at the back right skirt.
The dress is charming and wears well, but is, obviously, priced at less than 1/3 the price it would be in excellent condition.
