1940s Silk Crepe Cocktail Dress

About

A perfect blush, this 40s dress is the epitome of sophistication. Fitted throughout the chest and waist and down through the pencil length skirt. The gathered, wide straps at the shoulders create a square neckline and a slight cap sleeve. Originating at the center back, there are two, pleated panels that cascade down; the movement of the these pieces add significant drama. There is a white, thin mesh lining and a side zipper closure. There is slight spots of discoloration on the skirt, but they are hardly visible when worn. Very good condition.
