"Pleated Silk" Vintage late 1940's Fuchsia Pink Silk Pleated Dress UK 12-14 US 8-10

This original 1940's dress, made in the most sumptuous shade of Fuchsia pink silk, and with the most breathtaking pleats, is the perfect piece for your vintage wardrobe.

Her V shaped neckline is framed by a simple panel along the front of the décolletage and matching covered silk button fastenings. Her short capped sleeves feature horizontal pleats, that juxtapose the vertical pleats along the bodice. Her bust-line is set off by a pleated panel, that draws the eye to the centre of the dress, and cinched in waistline. Her elegant pleated skirt, is accented by rounded contrasted pleated panels along the front of the hipline, creating the illusion of pockets, while setting off the elegant drape of the silk.
