Larger Size Vintage Grey Taffeta Dress with Mauve Silk Satin Insert, ca 1940s

$225.00 USD


This beauty is in excellent vintage condition; the only flaw I can find is a tiny, barely discernible discoloration on the gathered portion of the mauve insert, as magnified in photo #3.

Please be sure to note the graceful cowl neckline, filled in with the mauve insert, the nipped waist, slinky sleeves and gently pleated back of the skirt. Please note as well how the cowl neckl becomes a stylized collar in the back.

Approximate measurements: (Please note that this dress has been pinned to fit my mannequin.)
bust: 38"
waist: 30"
hips: 34"
sleeve length: 22"
length: 45"
metal zipper length 17"

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