Black lace in any fashion era is a provocative statement. Because this dress is from an era not known for its outward sensuality, it resonates strongly as a bold representation of 40’s femininity. A slip-on style, it has no zipper but has 5 front covered buttons on the bodice. It is shown with a black slip. The slip-on style measures 42″B 36″W 46″H. The armhole is 9″ and the sleeve length is 10″. From shoulder to shoulder it is 18″ across. The total dress measures 46″ from shoulder to hem. The dress has wear on the shoulders (see picture detail). It is reparable and can be creatively brought back to perfect fashion health. Really stunning for Deco enthusiasts. Sold AS IS.
