Original 1940s 40s Vintage Fuchsia Pink Rayon Celanese Dress With Original Belt And Tiered Waterfall Skirt
This beautiful dress was made in the 1940s from a fuchsia pink rayon celanese fabric with a crepe like texture. The combination of padded shoulders and a nipped belted waist provides the framework for that ever so desirable 1940s hourglass silhouette. The designer of the dress has expertly used texture to add flamboyance by inserting horizontal tiers which wrap around the skirt to meet in the centre back. At the back where the waterfall tiers meet, the skirt draped into a flattering pleated train. The dress is fastened using a concealed metal zipper to the rear of the garment, making it conveniently step in, and has a makers label for Miss Greeley Jr.
Hips: 34” (tight 36”)
Length: 45 1/2” plus 2” hem
The dress is in good condition throughout, however there are some faint stains to the bodice as pictured. The fabric is coming away at the sides of the belt buckle and there is a small underarm seam pop as pictured.
