Sweet Disorder Vintage

1940s Hand-Painted Chiffon Gown


Dreamy 1940s gown with bright pink floral motifs hand-painted on the dusty mauve chiffon. Sweet scoop neckline with a cold shoulder drape, fitted bodice and voluminous skirt~the perfect silhouette to show off the dainty hand painting. The skirt has so much volume and movement, it swirls as you walk in a dreamy cloud around your legs. The bodice is darted beneath the drape for a perfect fit. Both the bodice and skirt have an attached acetate lining for modesty, the draped neckline is sheer for a delicate touch. Hidden side zipper for ease. So dreamy and divine! She's even prettier in person than in the photos.

This hand painted 1940s gown is in good condition. There is overall gentle wear & fading to the fabric and the painting, and a little very subtle color variation to the mauve dye. There are a few mends and marks at the hem of the skirt (see photos) that disappear in to the volume of the folds when worn. Some discoloration on the bodice lining, not visible on the outside of the dress. Metal side zipper works perfectly. Freshly cleaned, steamed and ready to wear. This one of a kind treasure is over 70 years old and super dreamy.
