A gorgeous wounded bird.

Spearmint green evening dress has bodice and sleeves of white embroidered gauze. The yoke and skirt is a transparent mesh. There is a matching underskirt so only the yoke is sheer. A double ruffle trims the yoke seam. Dainty little puff sleeves are bound at the edge and have no elastic, so no stretch there. Piping at the waist. Closes with a metal zip in the side.  A short back of the neck opening closes with hook and loop. Fabric is rayon. There are no labels, custom made - 1940s.
