"Violet Silk" Vintage 1940's Violet Crepe Silk Scalloped Dress UK 16 US 12


This wonderfully vibrant 1940's violet crepe silk dress, with burgundy toned buttons,  is the perfect addition to your vintage wardrobe.

Her V shaped neckline is accented by scalloped edges which join the front central seam of the dress. Her shoulder line is set off by pleats that radiate along each yoke and shoulder pads along each shoulder seam, that set off the 3/4 length sleeves. Her bodice boasts pleats that join gathers to either side of the waistline, which draws with a matching fabric tie in a bow to the front of the dress. Her simple panelled skirt, completes this piece in an iconic 1940's silhouette.
Finished with press stud fastenings beneath the buttons, this eye catching number is sure to be a statement piece.
