Sweet Disorder Vintage

1940s Folk Style Midi Dress

Sold out

Size: Large

Condition: Excellent

Fabulous 1940s folk style midi dress. Fabulous slit balloon sleeves with decorative stitching. Strong shoulders, nipped waist and pleated skirt.  Delicate hand stitching in coral silk thread accents the details of the gorgeous silhouette. The loops of the belt are covered in hand crocheted stitches, and line up perfectly with the stitching that adorns the pleats of the skirt. Crochet covered buttons at the neckline and wrists. Photos don't do this beauty justice, the texture and delicacy of the crochet is so gorgeous. The dress is fully tailored with padded shoulders and a metal side zip. Hand made by a very accomplished seamstress. Fabric is a weighty silk faille in very dark navy blue. I've included a photo of the dress between true navy and black garments to show you the color accurately.
