Vintage 1940s Black Rayon Crepe Short Sleeve Dress with Sheer Mesh Neckline

Vintage 1940s Black Rayon Crepe Short Sleeve Dress with Sheer Mesh Neckline

A sweet little 1940s black rayon crepe dress! It features a sheer mesh yoke at the neckline, framed with a ruffle border that continues over the shoulders. The sleeves are short and have a good amount of padding to give them structure and definition. The body of the dress is constructed using five panels that provide a lovely flare, and the rayon is very fluid so it drapes on the body beautifully. The back neck has three loops and buttons to close, and there is a left side metal zipper.

COLOR: Black


LABEL: No label, but there is a size tag inside.

CONDITION: Very good condition overall. There is a small hole in the mesh right at the neckline. There is one gap in the left side seam at the hem where it needs to be restitched.

✂--- Allow for some ease.
