D E T A I L S
• 1940s evening dress
• hourglass shape
• true black woven rayon with a matte texture

• keyhole at back neckline with double button closure
• cuffed three quarter dolman sleeves
• shoulder pads
• fitted waist, belt loops

A NOTE ON COLOR: The color is a true, deep black. There is absolutely no fading whatsoever, but the photos have been lightened to show detail - black is quite difficult to photograph!

My first true vintage piece!

I absolutely love this dress. It is beautifully taken care of, and although I know it has been loved by previous owners, it functions as of it were new (i.e. new zipper!). It is a heavier piece and that classic 3/4ish sleeve, so it won’t see much wear from me until next winter (Texas weather, ya know?), but I am so excited to have it in my wardrobe.
