Vintage 1940s Dress - Striking 40s Velvet Dress by New York Creation in a Peachy Rust Hue with Shirred Bodice
Vintage 1940s dress evokes sultry Old Hollywood glamour. Made of luxuriously soft rayon velvet, it is a color I can't quite name. It's a little like rust, a little like pumpkin - it's a warm, deep peachy rust? toasted strawberry? sort of shade. Each side of the bodice is shirred into the center, create ruching that frame and slims the silhouette. This extends past the waist, to the top of the hip. There are gathers along the top of the shoulders, and light padding for shape. The skirt is swishy and soft, cut on the bias.
Label: New York Creation
Condition: Good plus
This garment is clean and ready to enjoy. There is a extra dart in the bodice, a handstitched tuck as a repair. There are a couple hand stitched repairs to the underarm seams, and a 3/4" self-fabric patched hole just above the hem at back. Aside from that, just normal light seating to the velvet nap. The dress wears beautifully. I find no other issues to note!
