Size 8 1940s Black Dress - New Look 40s 50s Rayon Cocktail with Full Skirt - Terrific Design - V Point Corset Waist - Decollete - Bust 35

$ 179.99

A terrific 1940s black dress in post-war New Look lines, so beautiful with a corset style waist and very full skirt! This late 40s crepe dress has a deep V neckline, 3/4 sleeves with ruching at the elbow, and perfect pleats to the torso with a V-point to bust & hip. It's a fit-and-flare design with a waspy waist, tight gathers under the bust, and gathers to the very full skirt. Under the skirt are two long sheer pannier style panels, one at either side of the hip. Such a beauty!
