This elegant late 1940s pure silk ivory dress is a perfect example of the refined glamour of the era, its simple line skilfully accentuated by subtle detail in the construction. The thick, delicately embossed silk is a warm Ivory tone, and its weight gives the dress a luxurious feel and graceful movement. The open V neckline curves gently just below the natural line of the collar bone, and is gathered ever so slightly over the breast just below the seam. Pretty capped sleeves add to the delightfully feminine charm of this piece and are finished immaculately on the hem. The waistline nips in neatly above a generous full circle skirt comprised of 8 panels that sweeps just below the calf. This dress would make a beautiful bridal gown, and would also adapt effortlessly as evening / occasion wear. It is in beautiful vintage condition and would best suit US size 4, UK size 8.
