Stunning 40s rayon dress in black with a really delightful print of pink, yellow and green butterflies and polka dots and what looks like violets or clovers. Spectacular detailing with a keyhole cut out neck and short sleeves. Ruched front of bust and nipped in waistline with a lace trimmed draping peplum to the front hips. Staight cut skirt in two panels to the front, and four at the back. Back metal zipper to fasten and attached ties to the waistline to cinch you in.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a XS. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Note on the fit: please note this does not zip up tha back on the model, so please go by measurements rather than perceived fit, I also think this fits a little bit longer on a smaller person as it stretches less on the width. The dress does fit my 32" bust, 24" waist mannaquin perfectly.
Hip: 38" (at bottom of peplum)
Shoulder to waist: 16"
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam:
Sleeve from underarm to cuff:
(There is a only a miniscule hem on this so can not be let down)
Very good condition.
-A couple of small repairs to the lace trim, but these are nothing you would see when worn.
-Some faint pink marks to three of the white clovers to the lower part of the skirt.
-Some faint signs of wear approx 2.5" up from the hem where it looks like this was rehemmed shorter at some point and then let back down.
All in all still presents beautifully.
