Here is a very special and very rare vintage evening dress from the 40's - 50's. The photos don't do this unbelievably beautiful evening dress justice! You must feel the fabric and the fine silver metal thread embroidery in your hands to truly see the quality. It's made of a semi sheer rich supple red fabric...classic red not scarlet red... the fabric is either silk or rayon but there are no labels, it has a nice weight to it. It is not super lightweight like silk chiffon. Since it's made around the 1940's it would most likely be rayon. Couture quality!
The bodice is strapless with boning, all hand finished. There's very fine embroidery all over the bodice & sprinkled around the full skirt in real silver colored metal thread. There is a red metal zipper in back. You might want a slip or small petticoat underneath as the skirt fabric is semi sheer & there's no liner. All eyes will be on you in this dress! This is truly one of our all time favorite dresses...the finest & most glamorous dresses we've had in our 15 years of business! It's what fairy tales are made of.
