Sweet Disorder Vintage
1940s Green Velvet Midi Dress
Vintage 1940s velvet midi dress in lush hunter green. Wonderful Deco details~high neckline is pleated to form a flattering V shape over the bust. Big puffed sleeves with ruching on the shoulders for a strong silhouette. Back of the neckline closes with matching velvet covered buttons. Rhinestone belt buckle brings a bit of shine to the richness of the velvet. The color is most accurate in the first photo, it is true hunter green. Hidden side snap placket for ease. The little label says 'Crush Resistant Martinized Velvet'. Fabric is probably rayon. Very good condition with a few notes~There are stones missing from the belt buckle. Three tiny mends- two on the back above the waistband-hidden by the belt when worn. One on the front of the skirt near the hem. Not noticeable when worn, it is 1 mm long. See photos for closeups. The dress presents flawlessly. Sturdy, clean and ready to wear.
