Super Sexy Original Vintage 1940s 40s Black Femme Fatale Dress
This incredible dress was made from black crepe in the 1940s. It is cut in a super sexy fitted hourglass silhouette with padded shoulders and a tightly nipped waist. An offset seam detail on the wearer’s left front creates wonderful structural draping on the bodice and allows long pleats to fall into the fitted skirt. A draped tie detail enhances the neatly fitted shape at the hip and the draping as a whole is very reminiscent of the style of Dorothy O’Hara with all of her strong Femme Fatale vibes. The neckline is kept as a simple V shape to not distract from the wonderful tailoring elsewhere and there is a small metal zipper at the back of the neck. The garment also has an original metal side zipper allowing for easy access and bears the maker’s label for International Junior Original.
