"Heart-shaped" Vintage 1940's Pink Beaded Crepe Silk Dress

This beautiful 1940's blush pink crepe silk dress, with beaded accents, is the perfect addition to your vintage wardrobe.

Her small V shaped neckline is framed by intricate beadwork in shades of gunmetal grey, clear, blue & white, in a trailing floral pattern. The point of the collar is accented by small pleats that radiate along the top of the bodice.
Her short length puffed sleeves are set off by pleats along the top of the shoulder and to the front of the cuff, these are accented by small shoulder pads, sewn in along the shoulder seams.
Her fitted bodice is set off by a cinched in waistline, and 6 front seams that run from the base of the bodice into the skirt, creating fluted pleats along the hemline. Her eye catching heart shaped beaded pockets, draw the eye to the incredible craftsmanship and design of the era.
