Black crepe vintage 1940s dress with beaded and colourful felt embellishment
This truly beautiful vintage 1940s black crepe dress is one of the loveliest examples we've seen.
The subtle black crepe is in contrast to the wonderfully bright and colourful felt and bead embellished designs that grace the shoulder, mid-bodice and pocket.
It has long tapered sleeves with gathered gently padded shoulders, v-neckline with tie detail, bust darts and flared skirt. At the back there are waist darts for shape, and a keyhole detail with covered button to the back of the neck.
The dress pulls on over the head (no fastenings) and has a matching optional tie belt.
best fit a modern UK 10
measures approx 42" long
Over all in excellent vintage condition for its age. There is one small hole near the left side seam around the bust area (see pics, could easily be repaired) and a tiny bit of wear under the left arm seam (another easy fix). On close inspection a few of the little felt pieces are missing but could easily be replaced if you wish.
