Vintage Black Crepe Floral Motif Dress with Peplum and Butterfly Sleeves, ca 1940s

$180.00 USD



  • Crepe
This stunning dress is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws other than 2 small whitish spots on the back that are barely discernible when the dress is worn. The original belt has gone missing, but the threaded loops remain.

Please be sure to note the oh-so-flattering butterfly sleeve with their pale shrimp colored lining, the iconic peplum and, of course, the beautiful pink and white rose pattern. There is a soft shoulder pad on either side. Closure in the back is via a button and loop at the top.

Approximate measurements:
shoulder to shoulder: 17"
arm pit to arm pit: 18"
waist (flat): 15"
hips (flat): 19"
sleeve length: 11"
back length: 45"
side metal zipper length: 9 1/2"

This would make a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection and is a fine example of wearable 1940s textile art.
