This original late 1940's silk mix dress in a deep charcoal grey with a lighter shade of grey geometric woven pattern, is the perfect piece for your vintage wardrobe.
Her V shaped neckline is set off by a stand up collar and central button fastenings that run along the length of the dress. Her simple shoulder line sets off the dolman cut 3/4 length sleeves. Her cinched in waistline sets off the elegant wonderful flared cut of the skirt, accented by two front pockets.
