1940s Film Noir Dress

Sold out

Vintage 1940s dress fit for a film noir heroine. Spectacular silhouette with a high neckline, square padded shoulders, asymmetrical pleating across one shoulder, and buttons down the other side of the waist. Sleeves and skirt are black crepe, the body of the dress is taupe wool. Hidden metal side zip and zip at the back of the neckline for ease. No label, skillfully homemade. Very good condition, no damage to the crepe or the wool. There are three small discolorations on the bodice-two faint lighter spots, one in the pleating, one near the center of the chest and a faint darker smudge near the shoulder. See closeup photos. The paint has worn off much of the zip at the back of the neckline.  Otherwise flawless. Presents beautifully. Clean fresh & ready to wear.
