Nettie Rosenstein 1940's Black Crepe Evening Dress with Bow Back

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Late 1940's dress from American designer Nettie Rosenstein in black crepe. Pleating at bust, black heavy-faille sash with bow at back, as well as black faille trim at sleeve cuffs. Falls at mid-calf. Side zip. Lined at skirt.

Lovely drape at skirt, but could also probably be worn with a crinoline to provide a fuller effect, since the skirt has lots of fabric.

No size label, fits like M/L. See measurements.
Bust 38" (somewhat flexible due to dolman style cut.)
Waist 32".
Hip open.
Length 47".
Hem opening approximately 104".

Excellent condition, shows no fading or wear. Dress shields were added to preserve the underarms of this dress, apparently at the time of manufacture, but dress does not appear to have ever been worn.
