1940s sheer silk chiffon set. Lovely handmade structure and paneling. The dress has a front inner panel and very small early design shoulder pads for definition. Very beautiful and sexy. Snap enclosure on side and keyhole at the back of the neck with a cloth covered button enclosure.
This dress is partially hand-stitched and the construction is beautiful. The panel on the bodice (all the way up to the zig-zag collar) is lined with a starchy black silk crepe and lined again with silk chiffon. This gives the front some construction. The shoulder pads are made with the same fabric. There are pleats on the middle front and back of the skirt. There is a lovely 1.5x2 inch ruffled panel on the front of each shoulder at the collar bone.
Sleeve length: 8"
Bodice Length: 13"
The dress is in excellent condition. There is a small faded stain on front of bodice, but barely noticeable.
