Incredible Original 1940s 40s Vintage Mustard Yellow Dress With Gold Soutache And Double Peplum
This amazing dress was made from mustard yellow cotton in the 1940s. It features an unusual small stand up collar with a cross over bodice beneath. The cross over bodice has been decorated with intricate pin tuck detailing and swirls of beautiful silver soutache embroidery. The waist is nipped in as you would expect from a garment of this period and there are two small shirred panels just above the waist seam to emphasise this effect. The hips have been adorned with a stunning double peplum that is open in the centre to create a super flattering silhouette. The skirt itself is cut in a wide A line style that falls with plenty of volume and swish when moving and creates a pleated effect when still. Inside, the dress bears the maker’s label for Dolly Dimple Juniors as well as the initials RB written near the zipper (for a movie or a play maybe). The dress has a long metal zipper at the back, which allows you to step into the piece keeping hair and make up intact.
Length: 44 1/4”
The dress is in very good condition, however there are a couple of tiny marks, a small seam fray and some very faint discolouration near the hem as pictured.
