Beautiful vintage 1940s day dress in berry coloured rayon fabric, with cap sleeves and fabulous semi sheer peekaboo panel to the neckline, framed with pearlescent glass bugle beads.
Padded shoulders for a classic 1940s silhouette, and bust darts with seamed waist and belt loops. Lovely gently flared skirt with layered vented peplum detail to the front which ends at an angle each side to the rear.
Metal zip to the side, and short metal zip to the centre back.
best fit approx a modern UK 12/14
measures 41" long
A few beads missing at the neckline on close inspection, and very slight fading to the shoulders which isn't obvious. A few little marks to the skirt but over all very good for its age!
