1940s Vintage Dress - Black Beaded Crepe Dress - Dinner Dress

Black rayon crepe dinner dress with straight, mid-calf length skirt, false jacket front and elaborate beading. It gives the illusion of a jacket over a dress, but it really has a satin cross over bodice and false jacket fronts from the side seams. Beautiful floral beading with glass bugle beads adorns the "jacket" fronts. The bodice fastens at the front with a press stud, or leave it open for a lower neckline. Short cuffs on the long sleeves which close with a little metal zipper. Closes at the side with a metal zipper.
There are carriers at the waist but the original belt has been lost. No tags - custom made.
Rayon crepe and rayon satin.

Dry clean only.
