Vintage 1940s Black Taffeta Silver Stripe Peplum Dress, W25"

Vintage 1940s Black Taffeta Silver Stripe Peplum Dress, W25"

Gorgeous 40s black taffeta gown with silver stripes, a peplum waist and a statement shoulder bow. Slightly A-line maxi skirt with front slit, 12.5" full peplum, fitted bodice with boning, thin straps. Neckline is framed in a black taffeta fold. Fasten at centre back with a metal zippy. Unlined. 

*The last photo shows the dress being modelled with the underskirt hitched up in a look emanating Barbie's original 1959 debut á la black and white swimsuit. 

COLOUR: Black & silver 

MATERIAL: Taffeta & lurex

LABEL: No label

CONDITION: Tears at side seams- likely from boning. The side seam boning pieces are popping out of their casings. The lurex is very worn in areas. Looks like the side seams of the skirt were taken out at one point as there are visible stitching lines. Ripped at the V point of the back peplum opening. Tears in the back bodice. Straps need re-stitching. 

✂--- Allow for some ease.

Bust: 34 in. (86 cm)
Waist: 25 in. (63.5 cm)
Hip: 36 in. (91.5 cm)
