Be a standout at the party with this stunning 1940s chiffon floral cocktail gown!
In wonderful vintage condition, 14″ metal zipper works fine. Spaghetti straps have been shortened (see photos). Straps were not cut, but folded and sewn down.
Laying flat, it measures 15″ across chest, 15″ across waist, with a length of 48 from the small bow on the spaghetti strap to the hem.
This would be a small size…my friend is 5’5″ and she wore it with flat shoes…she is a smaller build. The dress form it is pictured on has a 27″ waist – the zipper zipped up but I was not able to latch the hook and eye. See photos.
The sweep is over 130″….there is so much chiffon and with a ruffled hem, it is very difficult to measure. Suffice to say, the sweep is elegant…very flowing and graceful.
Was professionally dry cleaned. There are a few small, faint age discoloration spots that did not photograph well, but please do bear in mind that as with any vintage garment, there will be various small imperfections given age and use that simply add to the charm.
Check my other listing for a vintage green ladies hat…would match lovely!
