"Soutache" Vintage 1940's Yellow Soutache Embellished Dress

This original 1940's dress, made in the most divine shade of yellow rayon, is the perfect piece for your vintage wardrobe.

Her V shaped cross over neckline is framed by smocking stitches along each shoulder, creating small gathered pleats that fan out along the bodice. Her mid length sleeves, are edged with turned up cuffs. Her cinched in waistline, is accented by trailing floral soutache embroidered patterns to each side panel, that draw in centrally with a fabric bow. Her elegant skirt, is set off by central pleats that fall from the gathered waistline detail behind the bow.

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.
