"Night Dancers" Vintage 1940's Black Crepe Silk & Tulle Appliqués Dress UK 10-12 US 6-8

This original 1940's dress, made in the most divine black crepe silk with intricate tulle inserts with hand stitched motifs of a dancing couple in crepe silk, is a rare piece to behold and never again find.

Her pointed collar is framed by appliqués along each yoke, and mid length sleeves with small pleats along each shoulder seam, edged with appliqués along each side of the cuffs. Her fitted bodice, is accented by matching crepe silk covered button and loop fastenings, that run from neckline to waist.
Her yoke seams, create small gathers in the crepe silk, that drape elegantly in loose pleats that join the cinched in waistline.
Her simple panelled skirt, is accented by motif cut outs of dancers, backed in tulle, contrasting those along the bodice and neckline.
