This incredible early 1940's crepe silk dress, in the most beautiful shade of coral pink, accented by a ruffled front hemline, is the perfect addition to your vintage wardrobe.

Her V shaped neckline is framed by 4 pleats along each shoulder line and yoke, that drape beautifully across the bust-line. Her short sleeves, boast intricate undulating hemline stitches, creating the illusion of scalloped edgings. Her fitted bodice, is set off by a cinched in waistline, drawn in by a mock cross over fastening, that wraps around the waistband and ties along the side.
Her elegant skirt line, features a matching silk ruffled panel, that drapes from the side of the waistline, and joins the hemline of the skirt, creating the illusion of a full wrap dress.
The hemline is edged with undulating stitches, that match those along the sleeves, creating an illusion of scalloped edgings.
