Vintage 1940s original black dress with gold metal leaf decoration UK 10 12 14 US 6 8 10 S M
An absolute show stopped of a 1940s dress on offer here. This is a British piece and fastens with a metal zip in the side seam and up the back. Amazing gathering detail on the front of the dress and a gold leaf metal decoration to the neckline.
Retailed by Jean Leroy, Guildford.
Fabric does have a little stretch- these equate to the max measurements, but I think it will work for smaller too.
Waist: 30-34in (I believe this originally had a belt)
Hips are 42in, but I can stretch to 44 maybe even 45in.
Bodice length: 16.5in
Total length: 51in
Age considered this is in really wonderful condition. A few very minor holes in the dress. Please note- because of the neckline decoration I have not cleaned this dress.
