Original 1940s 40s Vintage Midnight Blue Day Dress With Stripe Panels And Velvet Ribbons By Robin Fashions
This stunning voluptuous dress was made from a midnight blue crepe in the 1940s. The dress is made up of the crepe base with individual vertical strips of crepe running down from shoulder to hem, to give the impression of elongated box pleats down the entirety of the dress. Two decorative velvet ribbons are woven through the crepe strips at the bust and hip to add further wonderful detail. The dress also boasts padded shoulders, which complements a square neckline and shirt sleeves. It closes with an original metal side zipper and is unlined making it lightweight. Inside, it has a maker’s label for Robbins Fashions.
Length: 43” plus 1” hem
The dress is in very good condition, with only a small nibble as well as some small holes on the additional fabric behind the the neckline as pictured. There are also some small tears concealed behind the vertical crepe stripes and the velvet ribbon at the bust.
