"Crimson Satin" Vintage Early 1940's Red Satin Evening Dress UK 10-12 US 6-8


This breathtaking early 1940's crimson satin dress, rendered in a full circle cut and tailored to perfection, is the perfect piece for that special occasion.  

The V shaped neckline is framed by a simple shoulder line, accented by internally sewn satin shoulder pads that join the sleeve seam. The full length sleeves are accented by pointed details along each cuff and mock button and loop fastenings along the internal sides of each sleeve, these can be undone to aid in getting the sleeve beyond your wrist. The fitted bodice is set off by a central pointed V shaped waist seam detail, rendered in a matching satin piped finish. The show-stopping full circle skirt-line showcases the incredible red satin, and is cut on the bias adding to the movement of the silk. The skirt-line is cut to be slightly longer along the back, accenting the drape whilst creating a small train depending on your height.
