A gorgeous early 1940s evening dress in berry pink faille/grosgrain taffeta, very slim fitting for that fabulous silhouette, with side metal zip.
With wider neckline and lightly gathered 'collar' that overhangs the armholes, the floor-length skirt hangs beautifully, and features an incredible large 'bustle' detail of umbrella pleating.
(This is American made, there is no label but I found the exact same dress in another colour last year with the original makers' details inside, unfortunately I didn't make a note of it!)
Chest 32"
Waist 23"
Length from mid shoulder 52"

In great condition overall, there is very gentle seam stressing at the bodice but the fabric is naturally very strong. Gradual light colour fade to outer areas of the draping compared with inner which isn't noticeable on. A little gentle colour fade at the underarms, and a few scuff marks as just seen in pic 5. Otherwise just the odd tiny pin hole, scuff, or faint mark, but certainly nothing to detract from this piece's awesome impact!
