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.
