1940's Chantilly-Lace & Silk Sheer-Illusion Peplum Hourglass Cocktail Dress


An amazing and highly stylized 1940's cocktail dress! The silhouette is classic pin-up "femme fatale"; the skirt is deliciously lean but has an avant-garde draped side-peplum which moves so beautifully. The bodice is ultra seductive with its low-cut plunge shelf-bust bodice. My favorite part is the chantilly-lace nude illusion which really catches the eye! The nipped-waist really flatters the waistline and turns any woman into a starlet. You do not easily find this level of workmanship on garments today. Measurements Bust:32-33 inches Waist:25 inches Hips:36 inches Total Length:40 inches This vintage cocktail dress is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. This item is over 60 years old and is truly stunning!
