1940s Black & purple taffeta strapless peplum evening dress - Extra Small
A stunning 1940s evening dress in black rustly taffeta, printed with huge ‘watercolour’ florals in purples and green, from ‘Duprez’ label. Such an elegant piece, with boned strapless bodice finished with double cuff to the bust. Full, full length, skirt with peplum backed in silk tulle. Back metal zip, unlined
9” centrefront to waist, 38” skirt
Excellent condition after some professional restoration work, short length of ‘ghost stitch’ dots at one side of bust cuff, nothing noticeable when worn. A splendidly done small reverse patch reinforcement to back skirt which is invisible when worn, and to two small areas inside the bodice which are covered by bust cuff anyway. You would not know any of these things were there!
