Sweet Disorder Vintage

1940s Black Fringed Midi Dress


Fab 1940s fringed dress. Delicate puffed sleeves, ruched bodice and belted waist. The long tiers of fringe on the skirt add gorgeous movement that emphasizes every move you make. The fringe is hand knotted in pretty scallops at the hip line. You have to feel it's silky weight to truly appreciate it, it is so much fun to wear. The fabric is a woven rayon with a slubby texture. It is the perfect matte background to the shimmery fringe. Metal side zips at the side seam and back of the neckline for ease. Original matching belt completes the perfection.
