"Decorée" Vintage 1940's Black Crepe Silk & Beadwork Dress UK 14-16

This original 1940's dress, made in the most divine black crepe silk with intricate beaded accents, is the perfect piece for your vintage wardrobe.

Her V shaped neckline is framed by ornate beadwork, in the shape of a decorative collar with a mock fringed detail to the front, in shades of soft lilac and gold glass beads. Her short sleeves are set off with high shoulder pads, creating the iconic structure of the 1940's. Her elegant bodice sets off the cinched in waistline, drawn in by a matching fabric belt. Her skirt boasts a single tier to the front, that drapes to the left hand side, and falls under a decorative pointed panel, creating the illusion of a side sash, decorated with beadwork.

Here at Willow Hilson, we try our very best to note all the details of each garment, although we may sometimes overlook things, which we do apologise for. Please do not expect perfection, unless stated so.

Please make sure you check all the measurements of the garment before purchasing. Vintage garment sizes are not the same as those of today.
