Sweet Disorder Vintage

1940s Embroidered Kiss Print Gown


Size: Extra Small

Condition: Very Good

Rare & wonderful 1940s gown with sultry red lips embroidered on the bodice. Dainty scoop neckline and shawl collar. Huge bias cut skirt with two layers of net for lots of drama. Matching covered belt in the same net as the skirt. Classic 40s tailoring with ruching at the sides of the bodice for shaping and a sweetheart pleat at the center of the bust. Metal covered zipper in the side seam for ease. Fabric is acetate. The mannequin doesn't do this dress justice, imagine it against the glow of your skin to understand her true beauty.

I love the dainty femininity of this gown and the unexpected playfulness of the kiss print. A rare and fabulous 1940s treasure.

This rare 1940s gown is in very good condition with no damage or staining only gentle age appropriate wear. A little minor soiling at the hem of the under skirt and a few small holes in the net mostly at the hem. The bodice was altered at some point and the pinholes of the stitches remain on the back of the bodice on each side at the seams near the collar (see photo). A few pinholes under the collar also from the alteration. The net layers of the skirt are unhemmed. This beauty presents flawlessly and is freshly cleaned and ready to wear.
