40s Vintage Cocktail Party Dress Black Velvet Wrap Front L
This vintage 1940s special occasion dress is fabulous, flattering and plus sized, perfect for a winter holiday party! The vee-neck bodice has a wrap front that gathers into the waist and into the curving front yoke. Each side of the yoke is accented with five faceted black buttons & loops - the buttons sparkle like jet. Shoulders are lightly padded, sleeves are a bit longer than elbow length, the skirt is A-line and swingy.
No size label
|Bodice length from shoulder seam||15"||38|
Inky black rayon velvet.
Sideseam metal zipper. There are thread loops for a wide belt, but no belt was found with the dress.
By holding the dress up to a sunny window, I found two pinholes on the right front bodice - one a few inches above the waist, the other right below. No other issues noted.
