"Galaxy" Vintage 1940's Monochrome Star Print Dress UK 12
"Galaxy" Vintage 1940's Monochrome Star Print Dress
With the most exquisite pattern of painted stars in a monochrome palette, this original 1940's dress is perfect for your everyday vintage wardrobe.
Her round neckline is framed by short sleeves, and pleats along the top of the shoulders, that fall along the back, and create a soft V shaped backline above the zip fastening. Her fitted bodice, in a white background with painted black stars, sets off the nipped in waistline. Her simple skirt, made up of a black background with white painted stars, creates a timeless and iconic silhouette.
