Late 40’s Navy Silk Taffetta Dress w/ White Stripe Detail SOLD!

What a stunning example of transitional 40’s fashion! This dress has a full box and knife pleated skirt which falls 28” from the waistline.  The stunning detail at the neckline puts this piece firmly in the 40’s/  The squared off high back neckline, which sits 8 inches from the nape of the neck and opens at 3” across, is super flattering and dramatic while still providing the modesty and class ubiquitous in 40’s fashion.  Two original 1” rhinestone pins are sewn to the bottom corners of the neckline drawing the attention to the wearers beautiful face!  The sleeves are all one piece with the top making them more universally fitting and both are accented with bows at the elbows. The dress closes with a 10” metal zipper at the side and has thin shoulder pads to complete the silhouette. Though there is no label, common with pieces of this age, the construction is wonderful and the piece is in exquisite condition.  This is an absolutely stunning dress for any cocktail event or night out with enough gorgeous detail to please any vintage enthusiast.  Sz 2/4
