Original 1940s 40s Vintage Pink Taffeta Evening Dress With Double Elevens Dinner Plate Luxury Rationing Labels
This stunning evening gown was made from a pink watermark taffeta in the late 1940s. The square neckline is framed with triple pleated wide shoulder straps. The bust is accentuated by a fat yolk panel with ruffled darting to the sides. The elegant full length skirt has plenty of volume and is decorated to the rear with a hand tie belt to cinch in the waist. The dress has a side metal zipper and inside there is a double elevens luxury rationing label.
The dress is in fair condition with a number of small holes, particularly around the hem and some water marking to fabric of the skirt. These do largely disappear into the folds of the skirt when worn. The are also some pin holes to the bottom of the neckline where there was probably some sort of embellishment.
