This mesmerising 1940's dress, with a trailing floral pattern in shades of chartreuse, green and cream on a black silk background, is the perfect piece for your vintage wardrobe.
Her V shaped neckline is framed by a silk turned down collar, and smocking stitches along each shoulder line, that radiate into soft pleats along the yokes. Her short length sleeves, frame the fitted bodice. Her cinched in waistline, is accented by smocking stitches beneath the waist seam, to either side of the front of the peplum, radiating out into soft pleats. Her longline peplum cut, sits above a simple black silk skirt, completing this piece in an iconic 1940's silhouette.
