Gorgeous 40s vintage dress with shapely neckline, sleeve cuffs that gather/shirred at cuffs, and flared skirt. Silkiest-cool fabric in an extra beautiful print/colorway.

Do note that she needs a hem put in, and this is factored into pricing. There's no sign of where the original hem was, and I don't want to guess the perfect length you need.

Great vintage shape. Cleaned. 75+ years old.

There's one faint fingertip-sized spot hiding in the print near at rear shoulder, only found after looking her over a few times. As mentioned and pictured, this spectacular beauty needs a hem put in...the ribbon binding is there, ready to go. I didn't want to guess the length that will suit you best. Factored into pricing.
