Original 1940s 40s Vintage Dress Black Velvet Taffetta Plaid Bow Necktie
This wonderful dress was made from a black velvet in the 1940s. The garment is most probably handmade and has a v-shaped yolk at the bodice, framing the wearer’s waist beautifully. The neckline is highlighted with a taffeta Puritan collar with a large gathered fabric necktie in a beautiful blue and yellow plaid. The dress still has its original matching velvet fabric belt with a press stud closure, which can be used to cinch in the waist.
Waist: 38” press stud on the belt can be moved to make it smaller or add a slide through buckle
The dress is in good condition, however there are some holes to the collar, slight fading to the shoulders and some wear to the cuffs as pictured.
