Vintage Emerald Green Taffeta Belted Dress with Portrait Collar, ca Late 1940s - Early 1950s

$265.00 USD



  • Taffeta
Please note: this dress is a true deep emerald green in color, as best shown in the 1st photo.

This stunning dress has a few flaws that can be remedied for someone handy with a needle and thread: there are some tears on the top of each sleeve, on one shoulder and across the back, as magnified in the photos - these can "disappear" by shortening each sleeve and using the material to back the sections mentioned. The dress is too beautiful not to be worn. Please be sure to note the wonderful portrait collar.

Approximate measurement:
arm pit to arm pit: 18"
waist (flat): 12"
back length: 48"
sleeve length: 18"
belt length: 29"
side metal zipper length: 8"

This would make a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection and is a fine example of wearable 1950s textile art.
