"Night Sky" Vintage Early 1940's Navy Blue Crepe Silk Star Print Dress UK 8-10 US 4-6

This original early 1940's navy blue crepe silk dress, with a painted printed pattern of dotted stars, is a rare piece to behold and perfect for your vintage wardrobe.

Her rounded neckline is framed by a mock jacket, that is pleated along the front of the neckline to appear to be slightly open, above the navy blue jersey silk under-layer. Her full length sleeves, frame the rounded hemline featured of the mock jacket and cinched in waistline of the dress.
Her button and loop fastenings along the back of the dress, showcase the elegant craftsmanship and design of the later 1930's and early 1940's.

The simple skirt, drapes beautifully along the female form, creating an iconic 1940's silhouette.
