Beautiful 40s midnight blue/near black crepe dress with the most exquisite scalloped shoulders and pockets embellished with white floral beadwork. Very elegant silhouette with strong puffed and padded shoulders and a high rounded neck with a neat little scallop folded edge. Short sleeve. A scalloped panel runs across shoulder and down outer sleeve with lavish beading. Fitted bodice with sewn in pleats to the waist and shoulder seam to give soft draping to the bust. Back of neck fastens with small covered buttons and loops. Fitted waist with matching button on belt. Straight cut skirt with sewn in kick flare darts to the the front. Rounded patch pockets with scalloped edging and beadwork on the hip. Side metal zipper to fasten. Unlined. No labels.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a Small. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Fit on model: as shown
Chest: 35" (but the bust gathers would best fit a little bit loosely, so I would advice for around 32-33")
Shoulder to waist: 15"
Sleeve from underarm to cuff: 7"
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 13" but fits wider due to the puff shoulder, so would fit up to 15"
(There is a 1.5" hem on this)
Good condition. I think this has been rehemmed but quite a big hem remains. Bottom button and loop at the back of the neck has been removed, though this is not really visible or noticeable when worn.
