Stunning Black 1940's Dress with Velvet & Soutache Detailing and Pockets
What a stunning 1940's dress!
This beauty has a very intricate bodice and matching hip pockets with velvet and soutache detailing.
The bodice features beautiful black shiny buttons with little gold painted details that look like little diamontes.
The skirt very gently flares and falls to just below knee length.
The front buttons are functioning to aid getting the dress on, and there is also a side metal zip.
Condition: Good but with some issues which are the slight frayig to the edges of the velvet inside the leaf detailing, and some little nibbles to parts of the velvet also on the bodice and pocket flaps. I have tried to show these clearly in the photographs.
